more neckpieces for the reArt show on august 7th and the petaluma show on september 18th

   I been busy making more neck pieces and earrings for both shows.  I will not be posting pictures of the earrings although i can say one set is called the magnetic milagros and some of the other pieces involve vintage glass chandelier parts.
  Neck-pieces are my favorite things to make.   This first one is called "Buddha's Bead" primarily because it has a rosewood Buddha bead dangling from blue 'white heart' beads and a large Chinese red bead with silver end caps.  The "daisy chain" is silver i also used a brass vintage button, patina-ed brass beads and more blue white hearts to finish off the piece.  It is approximately 16" long. 

   
    The third piece involves a small skeleton key and a flaming heart milagro both from my trip to San Miguel de Allende last winter.    It's a dainty piece made for the 'faint of heart'.  (sold)
 

  I hope to see you out there on Sunday.  I will be in good company I hear.  Food, music, lots of art and wine.  thanks for reading ... yona c. riel
