The diamond drop necklaces were inspired by a single spider line in my shower; where every morning water formed on the delicate thread, like drops of dew being rearranged into lines of jazz, irregular and mesmerizing. I just had to turn it into a necklace.

Combining my love for ancient jewelry and nature I came up with these pieces.  All the parts are hand made in the studio and each diamond is bezel set with with a unique texture. The 18ky alloy I use has been recycled and has a rich deep gold color and all the diamonds are finely cut and ethically sourced.

I live in a rain forest, where even in the summer the fog condenses and drops of water drip down my rain chains.  One day I just happened to look up when the sun was shining at the perfect angle, and I had to turn it into something I could wear. 

The diamonds are attached by threading an 18ky gold wire through the chain and then welded, before and after each bead.

Beads and flats are my interpretation of a seaweed that washes up on the beaches here.  It’s long and thin with small round leaves, similar to my corokia plant.  The diamond beads add a scintillating sparkle.

The flats are wires that are balled up on the ends and then forged with a textured hammer, which gives them a rustic shimmer.  The wires are then threaded through the chain links, as are the diamond beads, and both are secured using a welder.
