Alice Macdonald - Necklaces with a bit more embellishment
The beauty and abundance of nature are my muse for these garden themed necklaces.
Sakura-The first delicate blush of spring blossoms on cherry trees is the inspiration for this necklace. The wire is antiqued silver. Misty pink rose quartz is embraced by pale pink glass flowers. The gentle drift of falling petals in a spring breeze made the fringe of flowers off of the bottom a necessity.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
The twelve dancing princesses was always a favorite fairytale of mine. The princesses traveled in three underground forests made entirely of precious metals. That vision was the inspiration for this necklace. Golden pyrite is the gem surrounded by bronze and golden glass flowers and leaves which are woven onto antiqued bronze wire. There is a small drop of leaves and flowers to bring this fairytale forest alive.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
A mythical forest queen, that is the legend of Maid Marion. My love of the intricate branches of trees are the inspiration for this necklace. I have used deep rich green grossular garnets as the focal for this sylvan necklace. The leaves are various czech glass beads. I have used delicate enameled antiqued bronze wire as the lace structure. This necklace is slightly larger than my usual pieces. It includes some dangling leaves at the point of the necklace as well.This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
