My handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces feature recycled glass beads, sterling silver, and gemstones. This venture was spawned by my love of changing necklaces with every outfit paired with my desire to be a change in the world. Enjoy!

When Jake came in with a handful of blood oranges from his tree, I was inspired by the bright colors, both sanguine and sunny. Gorgeous. I forbade him from slicing all of them until I could photograph a necklace that matched them.
"Where's the necklace?" he queried.
"In my head," I admitted.
He groan, "Oh, brother."
"No, seriously, give me an hour."
And he did...just. As soon as I photographed the pieces, this last orange was sliced and devoured.
I used magenta and orange druzy agate nuggets, recycled red and orange glass, orange turquoise, and garnet rounds to create this one-of-a-kind necklace. For the focal point, I opted for a small sterling silver flower that reminded me of delicate orange blossom.
