"Tree & Vines" Artisan Necklace HANDMADE One-of-a-kind
"I THINK that I shall never see . . . A poem lovely as a tree."
The necklace "Tree & Vines" is a result of my "tree-period." I seem to be in a period where everything I am drawn to is organic and has to do with trees, plants, leaves, etc. I created the focal of this piece with copper sheet, sterling silver sheet, silver solder, copper wire, and sterling silver wire. Twigs were gathered from my woods to use as visual guides to create each of the sections of the necklace. The twig section articulates (moves) and is finished with handmade rivets. The primitive look is my favorite style and so, it was natural to continue the image of the tree with twigs of copper. The hook of the clasp was created from a copper loop covered with sterling silver sheet and solder. The loop for the clasp is a section of textured copper wire that was doubled on itself and riveted to the prior twig link. Elements from nature included looped vines, twigs wrapped in vines, broken sub-twigs, bulged twigs with a variety of distended bumps and protruding parts to create a realistic look. The entire piece was handmade with no commercially produced pieces. The look of the twigs for the chain completes the organic look and makes this a statement piece for your jewelry collection.

ONE OF A KIND:
Many of my items are one of a kind (OOAK). All OOAK items are labeled as such. Other items may be a limited edition or an open stock.
I design 'custom kreations' (jewelry and rosaries) for special events. It is very meaningful to know the person who is going to received the item and to keep that person in mind during the design and creation of the item.
In addition to the standard rosaries for First Communion and Confirmation, I create custom First Communion and Confirmation designs for individual children and adults.
Rosaries make an excellent present for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. Given the interests and preferred colors & stones of an individual, a custom rosary can be created that speaks to the receiver of the gift.
Brides often wish to have custom jewelry for themselves. Additionally, the bride may wish to have matching jewelry for the bride's maids. I will discount multiple purchases of the same design.
If you don't see what you want in my studio -- just contact me. I am happy to design special pieces with you and for you. I love to create UNIQUE CUSTOM KREATIONS!

Just beautiful. Came just when I needed the symbol of Christ and hope the most. Ordering one for my mother now, too. Thank you so much.
