This series was inspired by another of my favorite places on earth, Portsmouth Island, North Carolina. The images are from original photos that I took there this spring.
On the front is view of a snowy egret basking in the sun. The back is a view of the majestic trees that still stand in spite of the harsh conditions that are a part of life on this island. The colors in these images are unbelievable, and it's accented by a Colorado Topaz Swarovski Crystal dangle. This piece can be worn either way.
I sandwiched these images between two 1 x 3 inch pieces of glass, I then soldered them with lead-free silver solder. The jump ring and spring ring are sterling silver, and a 24" grecian leather cord with a sterling silver hook clasp is included.
These works are one-of-a-kind originals. I've made each by hand, and no two are alike. I also love the rough industial feel of the solder that makes each one unique.
