One of my jewelery goals this year was to create a matched set. I tried different designs, but none of them were speaking to me. While I was working on all those collars, I began to think about making a bracelet that referenced some of their elements. I chose the end of my Arrow collar without the stone as the element to work into the bracelet, doubled it, wrapped it around, and voila! Petals was born.
I made a ring that mimicked the bracelet and quickly followed that with a pendant and a pair of earrings. Each piece works on its own, but it functions as a set as well.
This was exactly what I wanted out of my matched set goal. These pieces fit into my body of work and offer a smaller alternative to my collars.
All four pieces are sterling silver and will be available at Veleska Jewelry in Lancaster, PA during the December Showcase that I’m sharing there with Lisa Gallagher.
