Casbah

The owner of my favorite bead store called to say she ‘d just returned to Naples from the Tuscan Bead Show. I ran right down and picked out all these beads. My design just came to me immediately, and I couldn’t wait to put them all together. This is the result. It stands out on it’s own; so it can be worn with a very simple monocolored dress, but I love the mixture of color and pattern, and have shown it with this gorgeous kimono I purchased it and the hat in China in 2003. The necklace is actually versatile enough to look well either way. This double strand of coral, Italian glass, agate druzy and brass has a handblown glass clasp.

Falling leaves

 

Falling Leaves

The elements fell into place (a bad pun!), but in truth, this necklace seemed to design itself, and though composed of many individual beads, and shapes, it became for me a perfect example of my neckart. When this happens, it brings me a great deal of joy, and gratitude. I’ve been asked to duplicate “Falling Leaves”, but the spontaneity wouldn’t be there, as it was this time around, and that’s why I only do one-of-a-kind pieces. The designs remain fresh.
This necklace is SOLD to a lovely buyer from Canada who tried it on, and wouldn’t take it off for me to wrap. She kept it on with a soft pearl gray cashmere sweater, and pair of light blue jeans. She looked great, and very happy which made me happy as well.

Royal Amber

This piece started with the pendant. I fell in love with the carved two-sided Tibetan amber, and built around it. The seeds are also from Tibet, and the gold sticks were created in Greece. This is a perfect necklace for an individual who likes statement neckwear, and wants it to be light-weight. This is as light as a feather, and yet”speaks loudly” with power.

17.5 inches;  (This piece was just SOLD to a wonderful abstract painter from Connecticut who visited and loved Tibet. My neckart has a great home!)

I was stunned!

I was stunned to see how absolutely gorgeous my neck art looked on some pretty hot looking outfits from Petunia’s of Naples at a fashion show yesterday.  Usually someone buys a piece and goes home with it and I never get to see the necklace with the outfit it was bought for.  Wow!  Here’s a close-up photo of the necklace, and here it is on the model.
