This is a hand-painted piece of wood. This was signed on the back by the German Artist that painted it. I did have to cover the back because of the condition it was in, but if you ever want to see photos of the signature, let me know!! I picked two colors that I thought would bring out the best of the painting…although teal and orange are not usually put together, they worked for this necklace!! Matching fringe and a strap bring the whole look together. I even beaded little teal earrings with just an edge of orange to bring the whole look together!
My Grandmother was a lover of everything jewelry and beads. She would buy an item – just because she liked it – and then put it away. Many times she shopped at flea markets and garage sales. She could tell what was high quality with just a look!
When she passed away right before Christmas 2012 my mother sent me 10 medium sized USPS Priority boxes of beads, parts, creations, embellishments and many other items to use in my creations. Other items – like this one – you can purchase in my studio after I have cleaned, check and treated all the parts.
I hope that you enjoy my creation from my Grandmother’s stash and that it brings you as much joy as it has me – in the making of it! ~KM
This set took over 39 hours to complete. I used peyote stitch to complete it. The center is made without the use of GLUE or BACKING. The center sets inside beads that are between 11o and 15o (this means there are between 11 – 15 beads per inch).
Necklace measures at 17 – 18.75 inches in length and can be lengthened if needed. Center hangs down 3 inches from top of strap. All Findings are STERLING SILVER.
Earrings measure at 1.75 inches in length. Earrings are STERLING SILVER.
