Winged Victory and Pegasus

the Victory necklace on Kazu.

Design in progress...

I love having the option of wearing a necklace really long or really short--and that's one of my favorite things about this necklace. The softness of the wing against the thick chain has an edge.

Pegasus bracelet with Kazu's great big watch.

When making the wing, I worked in a more gestural and loose way which is not my typical style. I brought my tools and wax home and worked on it for several nights after my son went to sleep (I no longer have my workbench in the dining room, drat! so the dresser had to suffice.) I have many times carried a wax model around with me in case I wanted to work on it in my moments of free time; the creative design process is ongoing and I literally feel attached to the unfinished work-in-progress.

It is always a happy surprise when a piece like the Pegasus bracelet becomes popular, because it carries no engraved poetry. The piece itself is my poem.


  1. I went into the Market Street shop the other day just to drop off a piece to be sized, and came out wearing this bracelet... I love it! It makes me feel like a goddess! And I can feel the poetry... *sigh*

  2. It's beautiful! I want to go to your Market Street shop and come out wearing this too! It makes me think of wings shown in a movie that also didn't have many words.
