IDOM Jewelry

I have left the tropical weather behind.  Why?  I can’t say for sure at this point.  Oh, yes I have a shop to go back to.  It has been a hard transition coming back to the freezing cold of Portland.  I’m trying to remember my few last days at the beach eating mango and jack fruit underneath beautiful palm trees.  Swimming in 80 degree ocean was also good for the soul.  Although the weather here has been cold.  I still appreciated the gorgeous sunshine of crisp winter days.  It is nice to be back home with Brad and Stares.  I’m also looking forward to catch up with all the dear friends.

I went through my mother and my grandmother’s old jewelry.  Both of the women adored bold and exaggerated pieces.  Many of their favorite pieces have some element of textile and embroidery work.  I was inspired to do one of a kind necklaces while I was back in Bangkok.  Here is a piece that can become a bracelet.  You can detached the chain on both side.

I love fabric.  So the ribbon seem to be a good element for textile in jewelry.

Closer look on the necklace.

Playing around with shape of ribbon and adding more scale to the piece with larger beads.

I truly enjoyed designing jewelry on this trip.  They kept me calm and inspired.  More pics of jewelry soon.  Please come by and say hello.  Perhaps you can take some of these lovelies home with you.

Many thanks again to Caitlin and Salwa for managing our IDOM.  And to all the wonderful friends that helped out while I was away.  Big Thank yous to Emily, Michelle, David, and Andrea.
