What was your inspiration?
I am always inspired by different cultures and how they express their art. I had the good fortune to travel in southeast Asia in the 90's and while I was there, fell in love with the jewelry work I was privileged to witness being made. I also collected many beads and pendants while there. This pendant was purchased from an ebay shop called Nepalese Beads, whose proprietor, Eksha, offers the treasures I saw in my travels, very reasonably. I have been collecting beads for years and the right combination of them waited for this pendant to come along!
What are you most proud of?
