This necklace is RESERVED for Carmen

...or 'the light in the dark'. Anyway you see it, this necklace glows from within.

*Note that this piece may be worn as a choker, or a collier--it adjusts.

Asymmetrical, eccentric, yet beautifully cohesive and strong, it combines elements of tribal, Baroque, feminine, Victorian, primal, purity, huntress, explorer, high-tea on the savanah...the associations that come to mind are multiple.

I started with a focal bead I made from tea-stained vintage lace, sewn by hand into a blossom with a dark African seed as the stigma and a small sienna-brown wood bead at the base. This bead can fall to the center, or be worn off-center, according to how the necklace is worn.

* As I have included a 'way point' toward the closure, one may wear this piece as a choker, or a loose collier, and it looks magnificent any way you choose.

The carved Indonesian bone beads and and batik bone bead from Kenya lend Scuro just the perfect contrast to the green lampwork beads, highlighted by a honey hand-blown glass bead from Bali, and a green marbled glass bead free-falling next to a mint glass bead. It's worldly, isn't it? :-)

Closes with af an exquisite French goathorn toggle button carved completely on the round, which fits into my hand-woven loop. All beads have been meticulously and tightly knotted.

With a length of 46 centimeters (18 inches), Scuro in Chiaro will fit most women, and looks beautiful with any outfit, be it formal, or a tee.
