A Lariat style necklace, just flip one side over the other and counter balance the beautiful gems. One side is a brass, filigree "leaf-heart" bead cast in the old-wax method. Juxtaposed against a trifecta of AAA antique, African Turquoise disks beads. Finished with AAA gems: faceted Aquamarine, bright green Emeralds & faceted Fuchsia Sapphires mounted on 14K Gold filled, dap, chain & pinheads topped off with Ethiopian brass beads
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 design. Many of these components are fair trade sourced.

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 seven-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
