Beautifully made with fabulous beads and colors. And, I just love the adorable little bird as a center focal piece. A great addition to my collection of Gay's imaginative and lovely bead work. Thank you so much Gay! I love it!!!

This necklace is even lovelier in person. It's such a stand out. I can't wait to wear it with my summer whites! The quality and workmanship is amazing. Shipping was extra fast too.

About

Unique, Original Designs from Nature and a Love of Antiquity

As a life time artist and designer for over 40 years, I have shown my work in major galleries in San Francisco and New York. I have a MFA in Painting and Drawing and a BFA in Printmaking from the California College of the Arts. I studied Cloisonné Enamel and Gold and Silver Smithing at the State University of New York at New Paltz. My background is mainly in Fine Art and I have worked for major gift wear houses as a commercial designer and illustrator. Also, I am a college art instructor for Yuba Community College and the Davis Adult School.
I have always loved antiques for their beautiful craftsmenship and fine detail, a technical goal of mine. I have always been drawn to the beauty of nature visually for the colors, patterns, textures and curvilinear forms. My love and respect for all living things and deep concern for Earths future has brought me to a point in my art where I felt I must create amulets reflecting those feelings. I think that the wearing of a beautiful jasper, agate or fossil and an environment created around that stone gives the wearer and the viewer a moment of natural wonder and enhances their love of nature.
Etsy is Heaven for Artists. World wide exposure and reasonable fees. Not only do you get to show your work to the world, but you make friends world wide. Also, an artist can offer their work for sale without inflating the price for the gallery.
I find as a shopper on Etsy, all the cool and unusual parts for my jewelry and beautiful supplies from creative vendors worldwide.
All my pieces are original designs, I copy no one. My jewelry and beaded pictures are entirely designed and constructed by me alone. Unfortunately, the photography is mine also and I am struggling with showing the rich colors in my pieces. Sometimes I draw the design out before hand and sometimes I let the piece develop as I work. I enjoy working with customers on custom pieces, happy to incorporate their treasured objects in the piece.
