2″ x 1-1/2″ 3/8″, 18″ chain

The inspiration for these shapes in my artwork comes from my love of Moorish archways the genie bottle shaped, blown glass I’ve collected from Egypt, and the gilded glass holiday ornaments that belonged to my grandmother.

There are so many exotic design styles from antiquity that speak to me far more than the current trends in art jewelry and commercial design. Never one to merely imitate the past, I meld the feeling evoked by design styles from history while always striving to speak these lines and curves in my own voice. My artwork lies at the intersection of others’ past and my present.

The chain with the necklace is a 1-Directional Double Weave, an ancient pattern of Roman chain, which creates a square herringbone pattern.

This necklace is also available with a 20″ chain of the same pattern. Please select length from the pull down menu.
