When embroidering the centerpiece of this necklace I had a cottage garden in mind: the unruly growth of flowers and bushes, the meandering path, the evening walk you might take there.

I embroidered small glass beads one by one with strong thread on a sturdy base so the neckpiece will keep its shape. The back side is covered in a soft fabric so that it is soft against the skin.

I used green rounded leather for the sides of the necklace. The findings are nickel free.

Length with clasp 42.5 cm / 16 ¾ inches, centerpiece 16.5×12.5 cm / 6.5×5 inches

I find the world of colours enchanting, I love the thousand faces they show when combined in different ways. Texture is my other passion: the way it emphasizes the form of objects, and evokes various atmospheres.

When making jewelry I love creating objects that are noticed when worn. I strive to prepare my jewelry with the utmost attention to detail and the best craftsmanship I can achieve.

I owe my love of handmade objects to my family. My mother knitted me my first hooded sweater when I was but a few weeks old, and which I still used to sport in photos at the age of three, as she crocheted extra rows as I grew. I remember our intarsia coffee table that my father – a linguist by profession – made, complete with chess and Mills boards (on top of it an 11-kilo ash tray, he made from a 2nd World War bomb shell he had found). It was an inspiring home.

I started machine sewing when I was 12, and it is still a loved hobby. I took up jewelry making 10 years ago – I started with beading, then I went on to wire working. (Easy job: I borrowed a few tools from my husband. :-)

In a few years I started delivering courses in bead shops, and wrote 2 books on jewelry making.

As I became confident with pliers and beading needles, my imagination inspired me to further adventures: I started incorporating textiles, leather and occasionally wool in my jewelry. With this I feel I found my artistic media.
