This necklace is carefully crafted with the large, ornamental, incongruent-shaped pieces juxtaposed against the small, geometric color-filled ones. Creating a beautiful balance as it’s placed about your décolletage. It can move or be placed in countless ways endless looks. It contains incredibly vibrant gems, some shiny and polished and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All stones are bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety. The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these hand crafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.

The WEST is a power piece filled with many healing stones and handcrafted, fair trade beads sourced from places around the world. My pieces are designed from my inspiration of everyday life, art, fashion, music, architecture, nature, people and world events. I make my pieces with astute attention to detail, love and healing intentions.
