Lot’s is New – and Spring is still Coming!

March 4, 2015 | Filed under: Uncategorized

Besides having new work to show you, and some of it I am particularly excited about.  I have a selection of  vintage and antique Saudi Arabian metal and silver beads.  I have used the occasional piece as part of a necklace in the past.  This time, I have polished and cleaned up some of these pieces so that the details can be seen.  Each is hand made  and was used originally as decorative bits for clothing or in jewellery.  Pictured is a necklace of turquoise with a beautiful and fine  lapis lazuli focal piece.  I am working on a necklace with large coral.  When you see middle eastern jewellery, turquoise, coral and lapis lazuli are often the stones used to complement the metal and silver beads.  These colours and stones are also found in Native American Southwestern jewellery.  DSCF0014
