NAME: CLASSIC SdV
ORIGINS: The CLASSIC SDV was an experiment of sorts. I make a lot of bold, larger pieces and wanted to design something intricate but more delicate. I remembered the double-strand necklaces I would make as a teenager and went from there.
MATERIALS: Made with glass delica beads from Japan, brass beads from India and Ethiopia, and carnelian from India.
FUN FACT: The design is simple but difficult to make because the small carnelian stones need to fit well between the brass beads that are handmade. It takes time to find the perfect beads to fit so that they lay properly.
FAVORITE DETAIL: I love the little, uneven Ethiopian brass beads. At one point I tried something more uniform, but it didn’t look as good. I also love that the inner strand is simpler and the outer strand more complicated.
FAVORITE WAY TO WEAR IT: The orange and teal is a favorite color combination of mine. I love how it pops against a white top or dress. It gives way to all the color. It layers well with the PETITE KIRSTEN necklace. I like wearing the FUNKY HOOPS or CARNELIAN GEMSTONE CIRCLE earrings with it, too!
PERFECT GIFT FOR: Someone who doesn’t wear big statement pieces, has simple tastes in accessories or doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry.
