One of a kind. 22K Gold, 2 ctw. of Natural Raw Colored Diamonds, 5 Strand Necklace with Black Spinel & Handmade 22K Gold Beads & Toggle Clasp.
Early one summer morning I woke to a spike of light shining on the wall through a crack along the curtain and the window edge. Lying quietly, the creative mind was happily at work visualizing how this bright vision could take shape and how to make it. Having formulated it in my mind, I now needed to do a quick sketch to start making it real. I settled on carving it in sand stone to capture the soft granular feeling of the light and 22K gold for the solar luminosity. All of this was taking place in the wee hours of the morning.
The Night & Day Diamond Suite was originally inspired by my love of the deep, dark New Mexico night sky, full of shimmering stars.
When all the diamonds were set and the pieces were being prepared for the dark patina, a glass brush was used to give a clean matt finish. I looked at them on the bench, with that soft brushed silver glow, it literally dawned on me, “it’s now the Night and Day Diamond Suite!”
That’s how they were born. I hope you are equally inspired!
Like most, maybe all artists something first inspires me and that theme is what moves and develops through each and every piece of the collection.
The beautiful arrowheads you see in this collection were shown to me by a neighbor who found most of them in West Texas. As the collection developed other arrowheads were given to me.
As an artisan I was so inspired by these ancient peoples grace and skillful technology. Some of these pieces dating back 5000 to 8000 years. It is in honor of our ancestors and the creative impulse that I offer this "Ancients Collection" to you.
