Global Textures and colors are the hallmark of this statement piece. Garnets, suspended from a twist of sterling silver catches the light and displays its rich red color. Garnet is found in ancient in jewelry dating back 5000 years and especially popular in ancient Egypt and ancient Rome. The birthstone of January, these garnets traverse the year with simple elegance.
Tibetan Dzi - The stones I select are hand carved by Tibetan artisans and resemble the culturally important naturally occurring Dzi stones. Stones used in this piece are known as Naga Skin Dzi and are exceptionally beautiful with patterning and texture that is uncommon among the stones carved in Tibet. Each of the Dzi Agates is hand carve and unique in design.
Bronze is an ancient material first used for tools and weapons and then artistic endeavors such as sculpture and jewelry. From approximately 3500 b.c. to present day, bronze is the metal of artist and sculptures. Bronze beads for jewelry are an uncommon find. I love the thrill of the hunt.
Italian glass is known globally for its beauty and artistry. The focal bead in this piece is hand made in Italy and has is robust red and opaque in color.
This piece needs only a gentle dusting with a soft cloth. Please do not use any polishing compounds; they will remove the antique finish on the bronze and potentially scratch the glass and stones.
