Artist Statement: The neckpiece will be featured in the book - 1000 Jewelry Inspirations which should be available in bookstores in April/May. You can get a copy now at Amazon. The cover of the book is shown in the last photo. I crocheted this elaborately constructed necklace with cotton yarns in shades of coral, blue, and gold metallic. Many hours of work went into the design and the creation of this piece. After the crochet work was complete, I appliqued and embroidered parts of the necklace. While the inspiration for this came from the work of the painter Gustav Klimt, the design is my own. It will never be repeated exactly, so you will own the only one - as unique as you are.
