Kiss From A Rose
The Year of Jewelry theme for week 8 is Gods & Goddesses...my muse was not into that. But then I got to thinking...why not the goddess of flowers?
After hunting for silhouettes of roses I settled on one. Once the pattern was in place, the piece cut from sheet...I cut pieces to layer on top to add dimension.
The chain is comprised of mauve freshwater pearls, sterling silver beads and chantoyent muscovite. I added faceted green apatite to the point where the chain joins the rose.
