    Beautiful and clever pieces. The hippocampus is definitely a heart-stealer!

    Here is a bird from Carolyn Ehret, from the last time she did the GJX show in Tucson. I stole these from an old post and color corrected them. The pearls in the background are lavender, some almost blue, but they don't really show well. I used to wear the pendant a lot. I find that men, especially, love any kind of animal jewelry.

    That is really amazing...I was not familiar with Dresden paper, so I looked it up. I assume he must be rather delicate.

    I'd never heard of it either .. I wondered how it was made ! Thanks for sharing that info. Fascinating piece.

    That little bird is so cute! I've sat at the pearl offices with the pearl girls in Hong Kong as we poked around piles of baroques pulling out shapes .. it's quite fun. The office girls always have a good time trying to find rude ones lol Hmmm maybe there is a market out there for 'fertility pearl pendants' lol

    Wearable art is the very best kind of art.
