RoadQueen and Connemara

Amy Johnson's avatar Amy Johnson

My “Connemara” and “Road Queen” Collars are examples of how the choice of design materials can make a completely different statement in a piece of jewelry. The feminine and colorful “Connemara” Necklace is in stark contrast to the tough leather, chain, and bullets in the “Road Queen” Necklace. My technique is a combination of bead weaving and bead embroidery using hand cut and polished stones (Baja Fossil Shell Stone), glass cabochons, leather, pearls, metal components, chains, and seed beads. Each collar will be displayed in a shadow box to be hung on the wall. Each box measures 12” wide by 16” high by 4” deep.
