MENAGERIE

I was honored again this month to have two of my pieces featured in the August issue of Bead Trends magazine. I thought I would share this photo of one of the pieces, since I have heard quite a few people say that can't find the magazine. This is probably one of my all time favorite pieces, I wear it with almost everything, and it's just feels unique to me. I hand forged all the chain pieces myself out of 18gauge sterling, and the form for the pendant is 16 gauge, the rest is wrapped with 26 gauge. I like making these because each one will be different! It's my interpretation of" painting in jewelry" technique! I have listed a similar one on etsy , but more affordable as it doesn't have the hand made chain, but it can be made either way. It can be a painting just for you!

Congrats on your latest publication....I've had this issue for some time and thought the way they photographed it really showed it off well. I can see why you would wear this beautiful piece all the time! :-) The one in your Etsy shop is equally stunning.
