New Work


It was a beautiful Autumn day with magnificent blue skies today and it motivated me to do something with the stockpile of blue Turquoise I had been saving to make something special. I have a habit of buying beads and hording them away.

I wanted to make a necklace that could be worn short or long..tricky !!!

I started playing around with an asymetrical design using different sizes of turquoise and including lots of lovely silver spacers, beads and caps.

Finishing with a great feature toggle with a hand made silver disc ( by me) that can be added when the necklace is worn long. Georgeous!!

I made it nice and long so anyone...no matter how tall....could get the feeling of extraordinary length.

I've posted more of my new work on my website follow the link to check it out
