This necklace explores in tone and color the merging between earth and sky, and the gracefulness of a bird’s flight and song rising in the night. Pearls signify wisdom gained through experience and repetition, while the flash in labradorite is fleeting. It is seen for only a moment at a particular angle, to return when the observer’s glance meets the right perspective across the room. The work is a hand woven necklace made of metallic toned Japanese seed beads on FireLine, exemplifying the artist’s use of a monochromatic color palette. It is finished with a fine silver clasp and sterling silver findings. This piece resides in a private collection near Chicago.
