From big to small...or small to big?
Here are two new designs I just completed...one very small, and one very large. For those who prefer the small, the demure, this first jewel shown is titled "Morning Glory", and it features a beautiful triangular shaped citrine yellow glass stone set in copper.
This second design titled Obsidian is a masterpiece of a brooch/pin, for those who really like to make an impression with their jewelry. The abstract design was inspired by the shape of an octopus. It features a snowflake obsidian coin bead, genuine freshwater pearls, blackstone beads, and sparkling black onyx crystals, all woven with brass wire.
One thing I love so much about these woven jewels is because of the transparency due to the use of wire (rather than a solid metal), the jewel takes on a new look everytime you change outfit colors. This is really evident with the Obsidian brooch because it is attached to clothing and the fabric color will subtly show through the wires.
Now I'm starting to work on designs for my upcoming online, invitation only trunk show. If you haven't registered yet to receive your invite, please visit http://www.awovenwoman.com/ to do so.
