This asymmetrical pendant is made of non-tarnish silver plated copper wire, freshwater pearls, glass beads, crystal beads and Swarovski crystals. The chain is a soldered copper chain with nickel free coating.
Asymmetry always catches the eye. Combined with the sparkle of the crystals, the shimmer of the freshwater pearl it is bound to be noticed every time you wear it.
I bend the frame and secure the small treasures in place with wire wrapping.

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.
