But then I look in my jewelry boxes and see the beautiful pieces inherited from my Mother and Grandmother and at times love wearing those pieces from the 1920's through the 1950's. And pearls, oh my, pearls! I feel so dressed up, even in jeans, when wearing classic simple pearl jewelry.
I do not often repeat a design but will utilize the same configuration in different ways. I love the juxtaposition of the luminescence of white pearls paired with the ruggedness of black rocks and combine them quite often. While working on a Nature Inspired design around a rock and a stick pearl, I realized the basic configuration could lend itself to how I see jewelry and the three different categories I tend to separate it into: Classic Traditional, Retro, and Nature Inspired. This is what I came up with.
