Generation to Generation SOLD




One of the last jewelry pieces I wired before my hands tightened up on me with my MS relapse blended African turquoise, orange Imperial Jasper, carnelian, carved coconut wood, and a few Swarovski crystals with a raw brass wire that I hand antiqued.

These colors spoke to me of the wild orange lilies that grow beyond my grandmother's cabin, the lush greenery of a beach-side bungalow, and the old weathered wooden fences surrounding the centrality of decades of memories that span generations--mine, my mom's, her dad's, and now that of my children. I love the Beck cabin, the memories, my family, and the colors. It inspires art.

33" in length. Necklace $42; Earrings, $12
