This set was created for a Team Challenge, though it closely resembles a prototype I made last fall for OryCon in Portland, Oregon. Better closure on this one, though!

Kaywinnit Lee Frye, aka Kaylee, is the disarmingly open, mechanically-inclined, earthy mechanic of a Firefly class cargo ship called Serenity. She keeps it flying with a combination of love, axle grease, skill...and I'm pretty sure she sings to it at night.

She's the heart of the ship, beloved mei mei to the captain, with a conviction that the 'Verse is basically a shiny place, a sensual fondness for strawberries (hard to come by when your home has no soil or sunlight) and an attraction to all things pink, frilly, and incredibly girly...though mostly she wears coveralls and a layer of engine grime.

I imagined Kaylee buying herself a pretty red Strawberry bead in some trading post on a planet, paying more than she can afford, then scouring the ship for something to put with it so she can wear it. Spare engine parts, wire, a few pink beads...

The necklace and earrings are constructed from washers, copper wire, and pink Swarovski crystal beads. The focal part of the necklace features more of the same, plus a lampworked strawberry bead (made in my studio and annealed for strength), and a solid sterling silver tag stamped with the word "SHINY". Closure is a J-hook formed of copper, easy to close and to wear.
