Kamakura Collection

While in Kamakura, Japan, Margaret found some gorgeous handmade foil glass beads at a shop. Despite how much she liked them (and how little of a pink kind of girl she is) she couldn’t find any jewelry made with the beads she really liked. I remember suggested some simple earrings, and her response was, “Or I’ll just buy this bracelet and have you make me a something.” After a few consultations on chain and bead combinations I made her four necklaces and a pair of earrings.

As a fan of asymmetry I added the leaf-shaped metal detail to only one earring. Margaret was also a fan.
