Inspiration for Poets, Soul and Gathering Roses

Gathering Roses, Poets necklace and Soul necklace

The Italian detail on these necklaces was inspired by the tiny chasing design around my Buccellati ring I wear every day. I often study, daydream and marvel at this little ring and admire it under a loop. I wanted to juxtapose a detail that was old fashioned and lady like against the organic and very hand made style and do it in a way that would feel modern--another reason I chose to attach the flat chain to the sides the sides of the Poets neck.

Gathering Roses
I shall fill my lap with roses
Gathered in the milky way-
--Amy Lowell

Poets Necklace
Upon the wings
Of shimmering moonbeams
I pack my poet's dreams
For you.
My wearying strife,
My courage, my loss,
Into the night I toss
For you.
-Amy Lowell

Soul Necklace
-the soul will gravitate around the truth, as the planet around the light.
-Victor Hugo
