Cross My Heart Cuff
My works aren't conventional beaded pieces but experiments in the art of embellishment. This cuff is at once delicate and flamboyant. The soft pink, blue and silver tones represent the first flush of love as if one were lying in a field of flowers watching the blue sky above. Nearby a little bird sits in a tree and in its beak a vintage mother of pearl heart crossed with metallic thread hangs as if it were an offering of love or a secret to be kept.
The Ultimate Question Cuff
The wonder and mystery of the Masonic order is echoed in this gloriously decadent cuff. The curious thing I found about the Masonic medal I’ve used for this cuff is the fact it is engraved with the member number; 42. This is known to be the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything" - Douglas Adams 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.'
Strawberries & Cream Cuff
The Garden of the Artist Cuff
This cuff was inspired by 'The Dream' an incredible painting by the artist Henri Rousseau painted in 1910. I felt a great connection to Rousseau's primitive paintings growing up. I love the sense of longing inspired by Rousseau's dreamscapes of stylized flattened space.
