Alice Macdonald - Necklaces in White and Grey Hues
The high queen of Arthurian legend. In Welsh (the roots of the legend) the name means white shadow. Here is another necklace made for a queen, but instead of pure white there is a touch of ecru in the white. The focal point of the necklace is the mother of pearl which has been shattered and reset so there is a fine and shimmering texture, also freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals. The wire is gunmetal (a mix of gold and silver tones). This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
Stella Regina, queen of the stars. This is an elegant and delicate necklace that will absolutely help you find your inner royalty. The wire lace is very fine gauge antiqued bronze wire. I have used pure white freshwater pearls and royal blue kyanite for the gems. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
This is my favorite necklace and the only one that I have found the time to make for myself. Arianrhod is a goddess from Wales. She is the goddess of the silver wheel or the turn of the lights in the sky. It is said she rides the chariot of the moon. To honor her I have used my favorite stone, rainbow moonstone. It is created as well with shiny silver wire. The stones in the necklace have a lot of rainbow flash but it does not necessarily show up in the photo. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
Rainshadow, the northwest knows these well, a tall mountain which stops traveling clouds and therefore receives more rain and moisture. This necklace is inspired by the shimmer of color on a rainy day, calm and more intense. I have used a dark antiqued silver wire, both green and purple amethyst, and gray shell which has been coated with glass and faceted. This necklace on an overcast day or brilliant sunshine is infused with subtle color and elegance. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
Can there be a stone that can bring an imagination to the misty world that elves inhabit than Labradorite? The stone holds luminous rainbows and flashes of color. The Inuit people said this stone held the northern lights, it's not hard to envision this when you wear Labradorite. I have used an antiqued brass wire, labradorite, and gray/green glass leaves in its creation. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
This necklace is romance and elegance. Bright gold plated wire is the base for this necklace. I have used a luminous piece of mother of pearl as a focal and also small roses carved out of mother of pearl. I have also used freshwater pearls and deep red garnets. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
The Greek goddess of the moon Artemis is the inspiration for this necklace. I have used antiqued silver wire for my wire lace. The gems are grey moonstone (this is not rainbow moonstone, but it shimmers as if it were lit from within) and Selenite (a stone also named for the moon). This necklace, besides wearing a glint of enchanting moonlight, is a very neutral and versatile piece. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
This is a very dramatic necklace. Mirror mirror, a name inspired by faerie tales. The stones that I have used in this necklace are deep brown freshwater pearls, smoky quartz and hypersthene- a stone found both on earth and in meteorites! It has a luminous shimmering quality. It is both dark brown/black and streaks of silver and copper catch the light. The wire lace is deeply antiqued copper wire. This is a set of necklace and matching earrings.
