2009 Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver… I did not get a chance to document many of my sterling silver necklaces. I had run out and the reorder was on back order for… a while, so I made a bunch of 14k goldfilled jewelry before this photo shoot. I received the sterling silver wire in the spring and before you knew it summer was here and jewelry was selling and busy Door County was keeping me busy.

“Rare Chair Affair 2009″

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.
