Monet at Giverny








This is the first of many collaborations between my sister-in-law and I. Inspired by Monet's paintings at Giverny, we created this piece from sterling silver, rhyolite rainforest jasper, pearls and sun stone.

I fabricated the silver pieces and set the pearls into them, and Erika laid out the components and assembled the necklace.

I'm so pleased with the way this first piece turned out. We've already got the plan for our second design. The next design is inspired by Georges Seurat.

Hey I'm glad you saw my post about Craft in America. I'm hoping they post the video online, I don't have any tv reception so we'll see. Maybe you'll have to write a post about the show! : )

I think their presentation was in Cleveland SNAG. It's the only snag I've been to and it sounds familiar.
