As a former interior designer, I have always been enamored with beautiful antique works of art. The quality of workmanship is so superior to what we find today and those little inconsistencies announce to the world that the item was lovingly and proudly hand-crafted.

Several months ago, I came across some beautiful antique Mother-of-Pearl game counters and I knew they would make a stunning pendant for a necklace design. The combination of the oval game counter was combined with gray raw diamonds and baroque pearls to create my first design called Le Jeton. I have plans to make up additional designs with some of these unique and precious antique counters.

Rather simultaneously, I happened to discover some beautiful carved Mother-of-Pearl pieces and the wheels started turning. These new carved Mother-of -Pearl designs bear a striking resemblance to the antique game counters, but are much more affordable. Since the Le Jeton necklace is truly luxe with it’s antique Mother-of-Pearl pendant, 14K gold frame and raw diamonds - could I create a similar look for a smaller budget??

Eureka - the Pastiche Necklace was born! It is a modified copy of the original necklace with very similar elements - labradorite and baroque pearls with the beautifully carved Mother-of-Pearl pendant. The title “Pastiche” seemed appropriate since it means - a copy consisting wholly or chiefly of motifs or techniques borrowed from one or more sources.

This concept of creating a knock-off of my own design is truly a first. However, as I used to say to my interior design clients “Everyone has a budget - some are just more grand than others”.
