From the artist:
I am very proud of these necklaces. Each one is a special labor of love. I have to wait for the right time to make them. After the stone is set, it is one or two cuts with a very small saw blade by hand to make the whole picture. Metal is a stern medium, if your hand slips or you lose concentration for even a second, the picture can be destroyed and you have to start again, no touch-or second chances, it is done. It is a careful and sweet process. Calm steady breaths and mountains on the mind. The way the shadows creep over the north side of the ridges, the alpenglow, the collections of trees and rocks. And thinking about the light coming through the Montana agate that will take the picture to a whole new place of beauty. These necklaces have some of the most of my artistry and craftsmanship, a translation from 2-D into an almost 3-D form.
pieces vary due to the natural & handmade nature of each.
