“A Walk in The Park” Necklace

I love making jewelry and I also enjoy taking photographs whenever I am out and about with my dogs. These outings usually take me to parks in the neighbourhood where the opportunity to snap nature photographs abound.

Lately I started experimenting with translating my photographs into jewelry pieces, mostly necklaces. I find these projects truly exciting and challenging and love the process so much I decided to add a “wearable Art” line to my jewelry.

Details of the necklace with Wenge Wood spacers, “berries” clusters with “snow”

It snowed that morning and the snow was still fluffy and bright. Although very familiar to me, this park always takes on a different feel at the beginning of winter. Coming upon a wild mountain ash tree, I noticed the beautiful clusters of red berries capped with snow and stopped to take a photograph. That photo inspired the “Walk in The Park” Necklace.

I like that this necklace is bold and has “substance”, even though it is a five rows necklace it is still very wearable but definitely not for the faint of heart! in my opinion it is not a “statement” piece but definitely a conversation one!

I am excited to share with you my “Walk In The Park” necklace in a side-by-side format with the photograph that inspired it. I do hope you like it!
