YOJ 2008 Week #5: Mardi Gras


I don't really know anything about Mardi Gras, but I know that beads and beads and beads are involved. So I have used genuine Garnet beads and fresh water pearl beads very generously here on a sterling silver frame. In the middle is a genuine 10mm faceted Garnet. It took me a week to make this piece.


This piece has been inspired by the works of Magdalena, Iza, Eni Oken, traditional Indian jewelry (from India...the country I come from), and the historical royalty of India.
