I named this necklace after Tchaikovsky's final opera Iolanta. The story is about a blind princess learning to see through love. It's basically a medieval fairy tale. I designed this necklace with that in mind. A necklace fit for a princess.
While it may look difficult, all the stitches in this necklace are very easy.
At times we are glass workers, silversmiths, beaders, chainmaille-makers, wire-wrappers, teachers, woodworkers, photographers, and more. It depends on the day.
A couple of years ago we decided that we were tired of doing our art part-time. It was time to strike out on our own, thus the birth of Nia Roo Designs.
