Thanks for checking my Etsy shop.
My background is in Fine Art: painting, drawing, wall hangings, folding screens. I create necklaces the same way I create a painting using color, form, contrast and texture. Some are bold and vibrant, some are subtle and rich, some are fun and quirky. I love to work with gemstones, Murano glass beads, antique Venetian millefiori African trade beads and unusual beads from around the world. Most necklaces can be shortened free of charge.
The silk wall hangings and folding screens are influenced by long visits to Tokyo and Kyoto and are included with my paintings in the FINE ART section..
Everything in my shop is made by me except for the FOLK ART, VINTAGE and ANTIQUE listings.
