Pears are nature’s perfect form. Pear Necklace is a study in their textures and shadows: forms within forms, shapes and colors created by the play of light.
Pear Necklace comes from the sculpture Still Life With Pears. When I chose to study Still Life with Pears as a piece of jewelry I found that I could explore a more magnified version of the fruit. What I found interesting was the play of shapes and forms within the shadows. I chose to micro pave graduated sapphires to accentuate this. The leaf and twigs were integral to creating the “whole” look of sensuous unending line.
Earrings – 18k white gold twigs with buds of (4) carnelian bullet cabochons and (24) 1.25mm yellow sapphires.
