Brushed Silver and Pearl Hollow Form Necklace – 2nd Place for Contemporary Native American Jewelry
I am thrilled and honored that this piece won second place in the Contemporary Jewelry Division at the Eiteljorg Museum Indian Art Market 2014 in Indianapolis on June 21st. It feels great to be recognized for my work – and inspires me to keep on creating!
Entirely handmade silver and pearl necklace contains five white pearls set as shadowbox in a hollow form brushed silver pendant. The necklace is hand rolled silver with a Roman chain made of over 400 individually formed links.
Very fluid, feminine line. The hollow form is about two inches wide and about half and inch deep. The necklace is a flattering 16 inches.
Smooth pearl rests in the soft warm glow of brushed copper backed by brushed silver in this hollow form shadowbox pendant. Classic Native American technique with modern design. As the copper matures, it will deepen in color.
Hand-drafted, one-of-a-kind. Approximately 1″ in diameter by 1/4″ deep. Signed on the back. Shown here with a 5-strand 18″ omega necklace.
A pearl nestles in on of the lotus seed openings in this hand-carved silver ring. The silver reflects light like liquid, as its carved surface is not entirely flat, but rather filled with subtle organic curves. Modern shadowbox.
Seeds represent promise, potential, and growth. This ring is a sweet reminder of the possibilities we all possess.
Approximately 3/4 inches diameter, 1/4 inch in depth. One-of-a-kind. Signed on the inside of the ring.
Two interlocking hollow form pieces of fine silver, turquoise, and coral may be worn together or separately in this one-of-a-kind hand-crafted necklace. Beautiful, ocean blue of turquoise meets natural fiery red coral.
Brushed copper beautifully accentuates turquoise in the shadowbox pendant. The back and sides of the pendant are silver. The copper will mature over time, becoming richer and further emphasizing the hand-crafted process of this piece.
5/8 inches diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind, hollow form. Signed on the back.
