The ability to tell a story within the composition of a piece of jewelry is one I always strive to accomplish. From my earliest memory of looking through my Mother's jewelry box I can remember the magic locked in those moments. The glisten of diamonds and the sparkle of stones passed down through generations enthralled me, I was simply captivated by the great beauties that were delicately cocooned within the satin lining.
I was intrigued by more than just the lush nature of these beauties; I was completely drawn to the stories locked within them. A ring from a Great Grandmother held a tales of joy alongside moments of great sadness while a necklace given out of love spoke of romance and projected images of Prince Charming.
When presented with the opportunity to work with the LArge Hobnail Bezels I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Deep walls and a broad width allow for a story to be told - they are truly more like shadowboxes then mere bezels. While each one speaks on their own there is a broader tale locked within the layers. Tales that I will one day share with you.
