#312 "Daisy Days"

"Daisy Days" is another of my newer designs from my Simple Luxe Collection. This piece is a lampwork, gemstone 'wrap' or three-strand bracelet. That is, three strands of lampwork, stones, gems, white & regular sterling (925) and some lovely sterling charms including: a small rogue handmade 'DAISY' charm created by a local gifted artist using the old-wax casting technique. The same metalsmith also completed the dainty rouge-daisy toggle clasp made of solid sterling. Stunning pure white, clear & red/white studio lampwork beads (*at least 12 individual lampwork beads) were created by six esteemed lampwork artists living here and abroad and make up 'Daisy Days.' You will find a magnificent 'spankle' white round with swirls of white punctuated by real sterling droplets of silver encased in the glass. The swirls of white look like a moving scarf in the wind. These spankle beads are an original design of a gifted English artist. Her beads are difficult to come by as she sells most of her work locally. Also of note, are the clear/white bubble beads - like bubbles of water trapped under glass. The focal set of lampwork are created by the ever-talented, Catherine Steele. These include her encased red, clear & white daisy lentils & her actual daisy sculptural beads. I never tire of working with her daisy encased beads and as I was longing for full-on Spring this weekend, this seemed like the perfect time to pull out her cheerful daisy lentils set.
 
The piece is punctuated with AAA faceted quartz nuggets, freshwater Baroque & button, red furnace heart beads by the esteemed furnace glass artist Christensen, a large faceted chunky moonstone nugget and slim rondelles which flashes blue in just the right light and lots of white sterling findings, clear, red, opaque Swarovski crystal beads, sterling silver beads and accents. 'Daisy Days' is an elegant landscape of cascading beads for the season of unfolding green and color spots as gardens around the country start to offer up early blooms, preparing for an abundant, happy growing season (non-GMO seeds, of course).* For those unfamiliar with 'lampwork' beads - these are individual works of glass art created by gifted artists using rods of glass and a torch. There is a whole collectors' world of lampwork bead enthusiasts along with designers who use them in their jewelry work. Although some lampwork beads are now made en masse in China and beyond, my designs use only lampwork created by top-flight studio artists.As a quick aside, I read just yesterday that a color trend of Spring, 2012 is a pure and 'blinding' white. I must admit I was swooning when I saw an elegant, silk, flowing suit - perfectly tailored on a tall, elegant young woman. It is nice to see the pure color of white 'on trend' again!'Daisy Days' measures a firm 8.25 inches with very little give - this particular design is meant to have a snug fit as three separate strands against the wrist, quite unlike my signature dangle designs or my playful 2 strand wrap design. An 8.25 inch bracelet would best fit someone with a 6.50 or 6.75 inch wrist.

#423 'Sea Turtle...Come Away'

The muse behind 'Sea Turtle, Come Away' is the beautiful, spare sterling sea turtle charm along with a lyrical lampwork tile bead done in watercolor-shades (turquoise, blue, teal, purple, green & white) of a tropical sea and cluttered with some of earth's most lovely stones.  During the dim, darker days of early winter in Northern California, I am seeking the sea and I revel in memories of warmer water where the sea turtles swim. 

The primitive & simple sea turtle charm is surrounded by magnificent, colorful semi-precious gemstones and pearls as well as small,  organic, hand-shaped glass beads.  There is also one purple 'spankle' round bead created by a talented British artist who torches sterling silver into thick clear glass over a core of purple and looking like a piece of the beautiful starry cosmos above us. It  is this collection of studio beads, earthly stones and sterling that bring  'Sea Turtle, Come Away,'  to its form. Glossy Baroque, Keishi & button pearls, gentle green amethyst, moss green and ice blue aquamarine, AAA blue-flash moonstone, cubic zirconia teardrops, lime green peridot, sleeping beauty turquoise and Caribbean blue apatite which dangle & collect like so much iridescent sea water around the sea turtle charm, sparkling in nearly 40 flashes of color, texture and earthy glow.  A perfectly hand-cast bail  is made by a talented local metal artist using the old-wax technique and sterling to create a sturdy, handsome pendant/necklace bail. I have strung the pendant on weathered leather cord.  The pendant of 'Sea Turtle Come Away' is just over 4.5 inches in length.  Taken together, the necklace measures @ 20" and the leather cord can, of course, be swapped out for other necklace or chain options should you choose different looks for different days or events.
