figures in a clear bamboo forest

An acrylic forest serves as the backdrop for these minimal yet spectacular takes on traditional clothing from Asia.  The white on white details help bring focus to the shapes, draping, and details.  Excerpts from the "China through the Looking Glass Exhibit" at the Met Museum in NYC.  On Display now through September 7.  Just extended the schedule

"queen bee" long cross chain brass necklace

Reminiscent of the empress with its cascading curves and grand presence, this long brass necklace doesn't fail to be the center of attention.  Falling about mid line of the chest, sharp darting lines of the chainwork suspend its queen while contrasting the flowing symmetrical shape.  A bold statement piece that embodies the quirky with the elegant.

"monarch" cross chain brass necklace

Lacy, grand, and elegant with a little bit of edge.  Like a Rorschach ink blot, its symmetry in pendant design and chain work makes an intricate, bold statement as it crosses over your neck--hitting right across the collarbone.  An exciting piece to accent any outfit, both for casual or a night out

"lobstah" brass necklace

As playful as the name implies, this brass necklace is a fun and elegant play on the undersea creature.  Art deco meets mod that is a mixing of opposites--void vs. solid, symmetry vs. asymmetry, plan vs. elevation views--creating a dynamic interpretation.  Small and featherweight, but packs a punch that will have everyone looking your way.

diadem

The Marie Louise Diadem is set with over 1000 diamonds and Persian Turquoise.  Originally set with emeralds in place of the turquoise (before donation to the museum). 

One of the most exquisite diadems/crowns I have ever seen.  Currently on display at the Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.

These ladies even back in the day share my love of patterned clothing.  Complimented by angular sculptures to help paint the scene.  Excerpt from a German magazine on display at the MOMA.
