“Rare Chair Affair 2009″

12 Dec

In October of 2009, I was excited to participate in the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition’s fundraiser “Rare Chair Affair 2009” in Milwaukee, WI. I donated a necklace similar to the one below (never took a photo of it) with a matching pair of earrings. I am glad I could contribute to such a worthy cause.

This is such a beautiful necklace. I had had the focal point mussel shell for years, it was beautiful and I loved it when I bought it but it was such a statement that I was having a hard time finding the pearls and gemstones to go with it, let alone style of wire work. So as my work evolved I finally had the right combination and a new woven wire technique that worked perfectly for the mussel shell. And there you have it.

A mix of pink pearls and pink quartz woven into 14k goldfilled wire with pink mussel shell focal point.
