“A Walk in The Park” Necklace
(Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
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.
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!
Gemstones: Matte frosted Agate, Montana Agates, Tiger Eye, Rock Crystal chips, faceted Red Garnet. The separators are hand cut in Wenge Hardwood.
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!
