This is one of my favorites, made from laminated wood...
A similar piece, but one I don't like as well
While my niece was living in Rota (near Guam) she seemed so far away! The idea behind this jewelry creation was to limit the distance between my niece and her family...12 hearts for 12 sisters... her response... http://camasrain77.blogspot.com/
This is another piece that needed a remake. The beads would not lay right. As I tell my students, "If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again!" I ened up turning this necklace into two separated necklaces....the inside being one and I remade the outer layer turning some of the beads into earrings. I think this piece was much improved and warrented a new blouse to go with it!
