$189.00

Shipping to United States: Free

Beautiful and complex, layers of beadwork, silver chain and pearls frame an original vitreous enamel oval with an image from my "American Landscape" series. Shades of muted purple, beige, brown, ivory and peach pearls echo the landscape colors and form patterns of beads that cascade as an intricate bib necklace, a one of a kind piece of art jewelry.

The necklace is 20" long and has a drop in the center front of about 4". Oxidized sterling chains, wire, links, lobster clasp and beads are mixed with tiny 1mm copper metal beads, a variety of stones including labradorite, agates, faceted black spinel, smoky quartz, a beautifully matrixed nugget of amethyst, and a short strand of big baroque freshwater pearls in a lustrous ivory color.

In summer 2014, I focused for a few intense months on developing my ideas and imagery in copper enameling using various glasses and my small kiln. I was living in nature and inspired by Midwestern landscapes, I did a lot of photography, soaked up the colors and textures of the land, and tried ways to interpret all of this in vitreous enamels. My pendants and earrings feature glass bonded to copper for durable, permanent imagery. Then, these small landscapes each inspired the materials and colors for larger constructions, necklaces and earrings.

Ready to mail in my signature packaging that's ready to gift or to keep. Free shipping and insurance in the US.
