Desert Night - Story Medallion with Beaded Necklace
I learned when I was young that the American Southwest has a very special magic, especially those desert nights under the stars.
Beaded 24” necklace, and 1 3/4” hand painted pendant with wood base, shell, sand, metal, turquoise howlite and wood beads, mixed media, and a desert silhouette on the back
My Story Medallions are handcrafted pendants, made one-of-a-kind, one at a time.
They speak to me of the beauty and mystery of the world in miniature, each front and back is its own little universe. Each medallion reveals its story to me, layer by layer as I create them, and each invites others to let their own imaginations take flight. I use a collage technique incorporating a variety of found materials, methods and media, all signed on the back.
