Secret Garden and Marchesa

Amy Johnson's avatar Amy Johnson Vote Code: 65140

Secret Garden evokes the serene tranquility of sitting in a private garden with its soft color palette and textural interest. Marchesa is a study of shifted complementary colors - purple and yellow, with a deep aubergine and a golden yellow. Shibori fabric is woven into the beadwork for a very dimensional feel. The necklaces are created using Bead Embroidery and Bead Weaving techniques. Each bead is stitched individually with a needle and thread using stones, hand blown glass, pearls, crystals, and seed beads to create layers of color and texture.
