I don’t always plan a design. Sometimes a piece of jewelry just designs itself as if it knew what it wanted to be. I only need to be open and receptive to make it happen. This could take a few hours or a few days. I don’t stop working on it until it feels right.
That is just what happened with this necklace. It was originally going to be a pendant but, even as a pendant, it went through several evolutions.
This was the first stage
Then it grew these curves
Still not content, a hanger formed
It needed something. Some contrasting color or a chain began to manifest and finally became a necklace
This whole process took about 3 days. Sometimes it just happens that way.
