Sparkling jewels and luminous pearls, tiny gold granules and delicate chain Combinations of gold and diamonds in unexpected color...each twist and turn in a filigree pattern. The special hidden space within a locket, promising to hold a treasure or a secret never ceases to make my heart race. The weight of a gold object and the light catching a diamonds faceted surface are the promised reward to completing each new piece. Every new technique discovered opens the gate to a dozen new daydreams. My hope is that the wearer has a sentimental attachment to their new treasure. The mission is to combine the tiny detail gracefully within the design.
