Over the past few weeks I've been busy stocking my shop with new items, mostly earrings. A design that has received a lot of attention on Etsy are my Allegory of Spring earrings. They feature raw brass stampings in a floral motif recalling the Art Nouveau movement of the late 1800-1900's. A trio of Czech glass fire polished beads are suspended from stamping. I stocked them originally in the pale, opaline sage green shown below and also in a blue opal and milky blue and lavender. They are delicate, feminine, and just lovely.
I was requested by a friend last week to fabricate a necklace that would match the Allegory of Spring earrings. He was purchasing the earrings in blue opal for his wife as a birthday gift and wanted a matching earring and necklace set. Luck was on our side as I had the perfect Picasso finish Czech Glass beads in my stash in the right shades of blue and green that would echo the Allegory of Spring's opal blue beads perfectly.
Faceted gold pyrite cubes and a 14 k gold fill chain finished the necklace. I was rather happy with the way it turned out and how it complemented the earrings so nicely. It is now one of my favorite designs and I plan to make it in an array of Czech glass and semi-precious stones in the near future. Like the earrings, the necklace is feminine and subtle. It will work with so many outfits and occasions, too.
If you are interested in a custom version of this necklace, I can make it in any shade of the rainbow you can dream of! Please email for details. In the meantime, be on the look out for it in my shop.
