I have been working on an idea that a friend of mine, Mariejo, came up with: necklaces with a single focal bead, accompanied by a suitable quotation, and presented in a handmade box. A gift for someone who is graduating, a departing work colleague, a special friend, etc.
Here is the first example: “A work of art is a corner of creation seen through a temperament.” – Émile Zola.
The focal is called “Sandy Beach”. It measures 24 x 20 x 10 mm. It is mounted on sterling silver findings, and strung on 1.5 mm Greek leather.
The lid of the box measures 5 x 5 cm. The box is handmade and constructed from very sturdy, richly textured paper. The box is one of a limited edition of 10 or less.
