Ruth Ann's Garden - a mixed media bead embroidered necklace


This is one of my favorite pieces.  I made it years ago, and it was inspired by my Mother, who has the greenest of green thumbs I've ever known!  I wrote a tutorial to show you the basic steps of how it was conceived and put together.  It combines bead embroidery, beadweaving, and a little bit of stringing.

Andante - a mixed media necklace


Andante

The idea for this piece started to form in my mind when my husband became involved in restoring an antique player piano. The keys called to me in ways that I couldn't explain. I cried when I thought about the elephants that had been destroyed to make these objects of beauty. My tribute to those majestic animals is to prevent some of those keys from ending up in a landfill. 

Note ~ The only ivory that it is currently legal to use in the United States is either ancient fossilized ivory, or old recycled ivory like these keys.
