Hope Ever Green

This necklace has an Art Nouveau feel to it. Part tassel, part peacock feather, an arabesque. At the same time it makes me think of Christmas. When I look at it I smell pine needles. It is all kinds of green and hopeful. Like when the sun turns at its lowest point at the Winter solstice. Hope ever green.

It has a soft, raw edge and it's smocked and beaded in opalescent silver beads in a zig-zag pattern, like a trail of frost crystals.

In the shop on Friday.

beautiful...love your colour pallet on all of your work. It looks old world, ancient and like they all have a story to tell.
