Oriental inspiration, using a variety of materials - bone, faux bone, jade, turquoise, with a breeze from the orient blowing through the page.
The Kiss of the Dragon
An ox bone dragon in a double wire weave in patinated copper over a frame of non tarnish copper, 3" long forms the focal pendant. Red howlite beads in the weave pick out the pendant and complement the weave. It is carried by a multi strand necklace, 22" long. Fire agate beads in white and burnt sugar brown, coral and brass spacer beads, peachy mother of pearl, turquoise, wood and howlite nuggets as well as glass seed beads in a bohemian necklace with a light and summery look, with an ornamental hook as closure. A very pretty daytime necklace.
The pendant is made by the Hmong Miao minority tribes in China. It is hung on a necklace made of black agate, red crystals and wire beads handmade by me with hundreds of tiny silver lined glass seed beads, as well as a couple of black cinnabar beads. A toggle clasp for secure closure. The necklace is 23.5" long and the pendant is 4" long.
Seal of Approval
A colour treated jade medallion in a delectable shade of violet/purple is the 'seal of approval'. It is carried on a 22" long necklace made of gemstone beads - prehnite nuggets, aventurine, African turquoise, and Czech glass seed beeds The necklace is created in the messy boho style that is so popular these days and has a leaf toggle clasp for secure closure. A very cool necklace!
