Raw, Ablalone Shell matched with antique, petite, iridescent Mallard Glass beads from the 60's on 14K Gold Filled chain and clasps. Tribal meets Boho. The ear wires are premium, tension-back closures to secure them in place. These Flutter Drops are truly whimsical in feel. Perfect for beach and resort.
The stones make a singular partnership, chosen for their shape and balance. Each shell is natural and hand-cut minimally to keep the integrity of the minerals. The merging of these fine details produce a distinctive set.

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.
