The presence of owls is said to signal the coming of change. In this cluster pendant necklace, I have combined a white barn owl with a rose cut rutilated quartz – a stone that is believed to help heal emotional wounds and encourage spiritual awakening.
I call this piece, 'The Messenger.' The enameled focal point features an original one-of-a-kind barn owl that I created using tiny brushes and scribes to “paint” with finely ground glass and heated with a torch to fuse it to metal. It is set in a sterling silver handmade prong setting alongside a clear rose cut rutilated quartz that has “threads” of gold and black within.
Both elements are suspended together from a light and delicate 18” solid sterling silver rolo chain with a spring clasp, and it makes a gentle and satisfying tinkling sound when worn

𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘺 Brooch in progress. Vitreous enamel; hand painted, torch fired. This is one of a series of art jewelry pieces incorporating dead, flightless, and falling birds. I designed these pieces to provoke a strong sense of compassion and charity; they are my response to a pervasive callousness, a call for empathy for others.
