J eweled Horizons: Jewelry where each piece tells a story of history, culture, travel and fashion.
The beads that I use are all unique. They are either very old, handmade, well-traveled glass beads, or semi-precious hand cut beads from artisans in Third World Countries. I enjoy mixing contemporary tastes with ancient color combinations. When I design a piece, I try to combine a respect for classic designs and colors, with the taste of contemporary women. Each piece is one of a kind, and my inspiration is usually based on a particular bead or color or form. I also delight in remaking heirloom necklaces into something more updated.
I never repeat a design. Some of the Peruvian pieces are over 1000 years old. The Venetian trade beads are hundreds of years old. In addition to Venetian, there are Hebron, Bohemian, Dutch and African glass beads, all old, all traded, and all hand made.
By seeing and touching and wearing these creations, you will feel like you are stepping into a world of history, travel, and culture.
