The start of a new collection...

Last autumn a good friend, who is also a maker, ask me to make her a necklace just slightly different from my usual pieces. We worked together to make a necklace perfect for her. We brainstormed a new shape, that of a petal, and went with a new, simpler chain. While we were at it we made the chain longer, this bigger pendant needs to be shown off! This joint venture reminded me how much I love exploring my craft and executing a new challenge. It really is the start of something new, maybe many things new!

Hand-cut shapes. -notice the leaf-shaped pieces, there will be more of those coming soon!

Since this is the start of a new collection expect more color options and earrings to match. If you have a color request contact me, if you love this necklace as it is buy it here. I am excited to begin this new adventure.
