I've been busy sorting through jewelry, collecting ideas and finally creating.
Jewelry from the nest.
Picasso is one of the artists who I admire. He worked in many mediums and was always experimenting with different styles. Above is one of his fine art prints pictured in a book.
This antique ivory colored rose is the beautiful centerpiece for this necklace.
I couldn't decide which of the two pictures above that I like better, so I posted both.
There are two large chunks of carnelian stone flanking the rose with a third by the clasp. A chain of brass roses with rhinestone centers have a beautiful green patina on parts of the leaves. The asymmetrical design includes carved bone, crystal, brass and glass beads. A textured brass chain, with a pretty little marquise mother of pearl button, enables the necklace to be adjustable between 18 inches to 24 inches.
This necklace is available at my Etsy site RAEvNsNest here.
