Through The Looking Glass

A cast branch from a miniature rose bush became a looking glass about 15 years ago. One has to be very careful when picking it up to avoid the sharp thorns and I have noticed that this creates a tension when using it to read. I have always thought that reading the poems from our pieces cause a slowing down necessary to really hear the words.

The Ildiko necklace from the 20th Anniversary Collection was inspired by this piece after one of our dear customers, Mona Helen, asked me to make a magnifying glass she could wear.


  1. Oh my goodness! I'm so touched! How did I miss Ildiko last time I was in? I see another visit to the shop in my future... :-)

  2. yeah! hopefully I will be downtown next time you are in...and I am always appreciative of suggestions:)
