Alice Macdonald - Gem Garden, Collection 1
The beauty and abundance of nature are my muse for these garden themed necklaces.
Flowers and honey, beauty and sweetness, these were the realm of the Celtic goddess Ardwinna. This necklace is baltic amber, pearls, and glass flowers and leaves. This necklace is the warmth of the sun in a garden humming with bees. Indeed, amber being fossilized tree resin is ancient sunlight. The wire lace that I have made is enameled brass.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
The moment of sky meeting warm earth and what flowers would grow there is the theme of this necklace. A garden for Nuit, the Egyptian goddess of the sky. A huge piece of teal blue Apatite surrounded by vines of glass amber colored leaves and flowers woven into copper wire.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
This necklace is inspired by a dusky garden frequented by an enchantress. Dark antiqued copper wire holds smoky quartz entwined with raspberry red flowers made of glass and kieshi pearls. This necklace has enough neutral color that it could go with you to work, or pair it with red lipstick and the evening is elegant and empowering.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
Bright golden wire holds a garden around pale green Chalcedony. Joy and optimism are some of the attributes of the god Jupiter and the symbolism of the planet. This was the feeling I wished to convey with this necklace. Pale peach and yellow flowers and the freshest of green leaves are the glass flowers that bloom in this necklace.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
