Heartache Pendant


Artist Statement: Now this beautiful double sided heart pendant is available in bronze! This hand carved solid bronze sculpture has a warm shine that highlights the soft curves. A sentimental gift for a loved one or a treasured piece for yourself.

The bronze has oxidized to a beautiful natural green, like antique copper on a church roof. A stairway leads to a secret chamber inside your heart. See where the doorway leads by flipping it over. A single tear falls from the other side. Choose which side you want to show to the world and explore your own heart in this beautiful, unique keepsake pendant.

The Royal Medallion

The Royal Medallion by Ameera

Artist Statement: Regal and royal were the words that came to mind when I first set eyes on the gorgeous filigree brass stamping that forms the focal of this necklace. At almost 3 inches across it is also large, so it makes a statement! I just had to to pair it with the color purple, the color of royalty. For that, I hand painted and patinated purple, metal flowers and teamed them with big, bold, beautiful purple foiled glass beads and creamy white faux glass pearls. You can't leave out gold when you're talking royal, so the pearls, flowers and purple beads are punctuated with gold tone metal beads for a mellow rich contrast. I hand patinated the medallion to bring out its intricate detailing.

The shape of the necklace is in my signature asymmetric style and inspired by Roman Fibulas (toga pins) that were worn at the shoulder. The cascade of old gold chain dotted with the faux glass pearls, hanging from the medallion, represents the soft folds formed in the toga's fabric as it is held together by the fibula. The Royal Medallion is designed so that the medallion will sit roughly 6 inches below your shoulder.

Personally, I always thought of it as a perfect flower for winter, grey and cold against the skin but striking enough to draw you in. In the midst of roiling summer heat, I offer this version for cooling visions of snowy days.

This necklace is an understated affair at a total length of just under 17". The flower cup center piece is in line with the chain and is 3/4" across and just over 1/4" deep. There is a 1 3/4" extender chain, should one want to wear it longer. All metal is oxidized sterling silver. This piece would work wonderfully on it's own, or for layering with other pendant chains.

Glow Bowls


Artist Statement: Strand of five white glowbowls strung on metal wire.
Total length is 3'6" (the first bowl hangs 18" from the top of the wire).
They are glazed on the inside so the wax will not leach through to the surface.
The outside of the *glowbowls* are left unglazed.

I designed and created my first strand of *glowbowls* in 1999. In the early days they were all made by hand, pinched into shape and then strung on to wire. Things have changed a little since then and now my *glowbowls* are slip cast with a white clay from molds that are made from original hand pinched shapes. They come in strands of five, seven and nine.

They stand alone by day as a hanging sculpture. The wire is so thin that they appear to float. At night put votive candles in them and watch them glow.

They can be used either indoors or outdoors.
