I spent two days during the Art Fair on Fifth Avenue in front of Julies on Fifth designing and making jewelry. The weather was sunny and very hot, and I was outdoors at my table for about seven hours each day, but I still had a really good time talking to people about my neckart, and I had some very nice sales. This was the first time I’ve done a street fair, and I enjoyed the experience. These are two of the neck pieces I designed while I was working, and am thinking of doing more of the same in the future. I’ve been wanting to try this venue. A number of friends came by. who hadn’t seen me at work before, and they were quite interested in the process, and even took my photo for facebook!! “Thanks for your support!!!! These necklaces have been SOLD to another jewelry designer. Now THAT’S what I call a compliment!
I think this is a gorgeous neck piece (even if I do say so myself!!) It’s a powerful statement, yet has a delicacy about it. and the combination of Pacific Abalone. hemotite, pearls, chalcedony, agate and amethyst with an amethyst, and sterling clasp is elegant and upscale, adding a touch of importance to any outfit. It’s approximately 20 inches.Call or email for price>
I love the look and texture of Amber. I got this beautiful buttery amber in Gadansk Poland when I was lecturing on a cruise into the Baltic. I stumbled upon a shop with a basement filled with baskets of this georgous ancient tree sap, and the shopkeeper drilled a hole in it; so I could use it with my neckart. This double strand of amber and Italian glass is 22 inches. Call or email for price.
My home is my inspiration and my inspiration is my home. It greets me every morning, and I’m happy to look around and see the semetry of the artistic collage that is my living space. Shape and color put peace in my mind, and I’m ready to create. My life sings in this environment, and bring tears as well as smiles because of the intence joy it brings my soul. I need it to relax, and to enhance my next artistic project.
I love it, that the colors I’ve been using FOREVER are now fashion statements that I’ve always been attracted too! All the primary colors separately and together are visible in store windows, living spaces and everywhere in between. They stand for high energy, and the only place they were used up until now and sporadically throughout fashion history was in fast food chains, team colors and the like. This necklace goes perfectly with any of the primary colors, and produces high impact to the viewer. It doesn’t spell out relaxation, but rather excitment and youthfulness. The coral is dyed to an almost florescent blue. This paired with silver, and the gloss of the Abalone shell is natural bling.
(This piece was just SOLD on April 11th. It’s new owner , being from Northern California, Loved the combination of the natural beauty of the Pacific Abalone juxtaposed with the outrageouly dyed blue of the coral branches. She looks great in it)
I had a wonderful photo shoot with one of my favorite models (who happens to be a good friend)I’m going to be taking more of other friends with my one-of-a -kind neckart, and hope you enjoy their take ond mine on wearing the pieces. Here are two of the photos. The blue necklace is all glass beads. Tthe unusually shaped double strand in earthier tones is constructed of semi precious stones and pearls. Call or email for price.
