Publication: Earth Dance

I’ve been busy for the last two months doing all kids-and-family-related stuff and, of course, making some new jewelry designs. Unfortunately, I can’t show them to you right now as they aren’t yet photographed. Nevertheless, I have another good thing to share: my work in Stringing magazine!

This "Earth Dance" bracelet appears on page 61 of the Fall 2009 issue of Stringing.

It is composed of Jennifer Jennings’ flirty ruffle glass discs that captured my heart from the very first moment. The wavy shape brings a sense of motion and in particular, the dark ivory-colored discs have chocolate swirl on them. I thought these were interesting elements and should be featured in my work. So I lined them up in slight different sizes and interspersed them with sparkling Swarovski bicones. If normally I use sterling silver in my work, this time I accented the bracelet with copper findings which appear to blend nicely with the fall color palette of the ruffle discs.
