Thank Goodness -A Cameo Necklace!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Our necklace is a repurposed 19th-Century Amethyst glass cameo depicting the Roman goddess Diana gazing into the distance. As goddess of the hunt, is she scavenging for the forgotten item for the Thanksgiving feast or desperately seeking those early Black Friday deals? What we do know is that she is joined by a handsome turn of the century, hand carved, Sterling Silver set genuine coral (for prosperity, peace and reconnecting with nature) pin. Together they now unite on a continuous circular gold-filled chain, setting and findings.  Buy it hereVictorian Cameo and Coral Necklace

Gulf Coast Rosie, Part 2…

Happy to share with you the second stage of creating the final bracelet – etched Gulf Coast Rosie! It was challenging to balance the subtle sandy ground (literal sand paper) with the crepe myrtle blossoms and Rosie herself. After creating many versions, sweet success! Below are the images in process: blue Press and Peel paper, blue paper iron-on and the etched plates.  Stay tuned for Part 3!

Gulf Coast Rosie, Part 1…

As I continue to integrate my photographic practice into my jewelry making, I had an epiphany-pairing etched brass with the copper bracelet base.  An interpretation of stained glass windows into wearable art.  While in Galveston, I happened upon this thoughtful statue and nicknamed her Rosie. Through the wizardry of Photoshop, I cut-out the crepe myrtle she holds in her left hand, copied, scaled and created a Warhol like design around her.  Below are my original photo, bracelet design and desaturated color version ready to print. Stay tuned for Part 2.

The Roman “K” Coin Necklace

The Romans were known for inventing many things including bound books, newspapers, concrete, and highways systems. They were one of the first societies to place building facades and portraits on coinage.  Our new design is an antique Byzantine letter “K” coin set in a handmade Sterling Silver setting aftfully placed on its side.  Adding a little contrast to this to the rough hewn coin is a gold filled Art Deco watch chain link gliding along on Sterling Silver chain and findings. Buy it here: Roman K Coin Necklace
