From my new collection featuring a variety of semi precious stones! This pretty, stylish necklace features a silver plated chain, and a green agate druzy stone surrounded with sparkling crystals and abalone shell pieces. This necklace measures approx. 32" in length and is finished with a silver plated lobster clasp and 1" extender.
Druzy is the glittering effect of tiny crystals over top a colorful mineral. The druzy quartz gems grow slowly over millions of years and are found as the very last layer of growth on agate. This stone is a favorite among those who love sparkle!
After living in Paris, France for 5 years, and studying Haute Couture Beadwork at the prestigious atelier Lesage (an atelier owned by Chanel), I decided to design a line of jewelry inspired by what I saw on the runways of Paris. Fascinated by the many artisans still working in the craft trade who create pieces for the world of Couture fashion, I decided to shed some light on these little known atelier houses, by teaching couture beadwork and embroidery and giving lectures on the craft trade. I also incorporate these age old techniques that I learned at Lesage into my own creations. Spending years attending Fashion Week and Couture Week, I take what I see on the runways for inspiration for my jewelry designs.
This jewelry was made by hand in my studio and comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving.
