bohemian meets tribal warrior
This design beams with:
• Paddle charms; hand pounded from 14k gold fill
• Black Spinal micro-faceted, diamond-cut beads
• Strawberry, Rose Quartz micro-faceted, diamond-cut beads
• Round 14k, sand-blasted micro beads
• Patikan & White wooden, natural beads from the Philippines
• The 14K gold ear wires have a hand-forged, paddle-shape, pendant charms.
The stones make a singular partnership, chosen for their shape and balance. Each gem is raw, natural, hand-cut and polished minimally to keep the integrity of the minerals. The merging of these fine details produce a distinctive set.
Measurements (approximated):1.5" long dangle (I can make them shorter or longer, convo me).
Every design is accompanied by a list. The list encompasses history, as well as scientific details, and the meta-physical healing qualities inherent to the metals, gems & beads on your piece. All accessory and jewelry items are shipped securely inside BINC bodyBAUBLES signature, keepsake storage satchel. The petite bag is made of inimitable, repurposed materials. The packaging doubles as thoughtful and unique gift-wrapping!
Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing eight-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
