Welcome to the World


I made this custom piece for a friend of a friend. He and his wife were expecting their first child and he wanted to commemorate the occasion with a necklace and earrings. It was such a special commission, I was delighted to be asked.

Strung on the 14k gold chain are seven tiny freshwater pearls -- the birthstone for June -- for the lucky birthday boy, with two larger freshwater pearls for his parents, symbolizing faith, honesty, wisdom and dignity. The six iridescent moonstones, for passion and new beginnings, will bring good luck and a happy home. And finally five Australian fire opals that speak to the heart and bring forth all the wonders of childhood -- creativity, imagination, inspiration and memory.

Took me awhile to figure it out, but when I did, it came together like magic. Must of be that new baby mojo...Congrats to the happy family!
