When I am working on a body of jewelry, there is no such thing as planning designs as a group. Ideas are scattered, designs sometimes don't mix. It is a conglomeration. I just start with an idea and end up wherever it may lead. Because of this, I sometimes end up over my head. I guess that's good for growth.
Fortunately this body of work came together and the overwhelm was overcome.
The inspiration for this necklace began with a piece of scrap from an old oil pastel painting and a snippet of a poem by Emily Dickinson. her lovely words tell the story.
