The creation of Tribal Poetry slowly unfolded over the course of eight months. I started the piece while vacationing with family in the Adirondacks. I found the 18 gauge copper wire in a unique “everything under the sun” store called Old Forge Hardware. When I returned to our cabin, I was inspired by the mountainous landscape and created the focal piece. It sat in my “to create” bin, until recently. While working on some other pieces of jewelry, a strand of teal mother of pearl caught my eye as the perfect compliment. It reminded me of the ocean waves of Cape Cod, where my husband and I vacationed the year before. This necklace is a story about visiting unique places and the beauty of spending time with family.
I am very honored to have Tribal Poetry featured in the September 2011 issue of Bead Style magazine! It is in their "Designs we love" section on page 17. The issue hits news stands on August 2, 2011.
