I got the basic idea from visiting museums-- gotta love the jewelry in them!! You see all these amazing pieces that are 4000 years old and and you think, "This should not be behind glass. I should be wearing this. We should *all* be wearing this!"
I scratched some designs out in eyeliner (back when I wore the stuff) when we went to the Met.
When sistermine got married I actually made my very first pair of Primitive Series earrings for her second holes-- two years later and she hasn't taken them out-- then I started selling them on Etsy and they whole series has grown from there.
Much of it in response to customer needs and requests.
This is the latest offering-- the kumah bangle. This is the second one and it's in my shops. The proto-type was made for a friend who likes blue and green and travelling. I hope she likes her bangle!
I love the simplicity of it and the African beads and they'd be great piled in fives on each wrist!
