An ode to mothers and nurturers, the enameled focal piece in the necklace features a one-of-a-kind glass scene of peonies set in a sterling silver handmade bezel alongside a smaller medallion which I etched with the last stanza of my original poem 'Born':

She gave the sympathy
of the early sun, the patience of
the searching root, the kindness
caught in each drop
that gives to the waiting seeds
and bulbs, shy and sleeping,
the will to awaken.

The enameled focal piece is completely hand fabricated, about 1" wide. I created the image of the flowers using tiny brushes to "paint" with finely ground glass and water and fused it with a torch. The enameled piece is about 1" wide, the etched medallion is slightly smaller. Both elements are suspended together from a 20” solid sterling silver rolo chain with an S-hook pinch clasp, and it makes a gentle and satisfying tinkling sound when worn.
