Take a Peek - Newest Commission

Amethyst-February, Ruby-July, Topaz/Citrine-November, Peridot-August
Czech pressed glass, pearls, semi-precious stones, sterling silver, linen




First version--mutually agreed there was "too much stuff" and it was kind of too large.
Final results after redo are above.


I'm actually too tired right this minute to put together a string of intelligent words, but did want to share images of a new commission I finished this weekend. It uses the composition of earlier "flower neck pieces" but the choice of colors and the arrangement was made for a family birthstone collection.

Have a good Monday/Presidents' Day/Snow Day (for some!)

That's quite lovely Karen. I know you're really excited about how your work is evolving these days and sometimes going back to a previous style can feel a bit stifling to your artist side. But, it's so gorgeous- love the concept behind it and that green on either side gives just enough to balance the color.

I too enjoyed the "We are the World" assembly. Did you see the full length version the next night? It's really the same, they just cut out a few parts.
