Sea Scape

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)

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.

Pearls, and more pearls

I bought this Turbo shell without any preconceived idea of how I would “weave” it into one of my neckart designs.  I decided to surround it with  an abundance of pearls as though nestled in a treasure chest at the bottom of the ocean. I want it to be a dazzling addition to an outfit worn for an important evening out. It’s four strands of fresh water pearls,carnelian, amythest and smokey topaz with a free form gold vermiel toggle clasp make a powerful statement that will be remembered.     Call or email for price.

Royale Jade

Royal Jade

I enjoyed juxtaposing the coral tubes with faceted glass and the pale green carved jade. The textures are an unexpected combination, surprisingly neutral in that the stones go with any number of colors. I found the pendant in a little bead store in Morro Bay, California where I always discover unusual pieces to add to my neck art. The owner is also a gardner,and it’s a pleasure to sit on one of the benches to relax outdoors in the rear of the shop. This is a double strand approximately 20 inches.   Call or email for price.
