"Unexpected Elegance" - Raw Kunzite and Sterling Silver Statement Necklace - $200.00
This page is dedicated to what I am creating right now! Creating a collection takes time. Usually, a couple months of solid creating with no other distractions. So, in honor of those times when I am working on creations for the other parts of my business: Gallery Uptown, a Lakeshore Visual Arts Collective pop up show, or something gorgeous for myself, I present, "What's New?". I will be updating this page every couple of days and in order to make room for what is truly new, the posts will be deleted after approximately two weeks.
Some of these items will be available for purchase. If you are interested, please click on the, "Contact" button above and send me an email.
3/11/2020 I made this necklace over 10 years ago. Not many of my personal pieces survive this long. When I tire of something, I either sell it or cut it apart and reclaim the beads. So if it lasts, it's special! This piece was made with brass findings and beads, vintage, jewel tone metal drops and donuts, vintage, sparkly drops and connectors, Swarovski crystals, & reclaimed bits and pieces of jewelry created by Ayla Barr.
3/8/2020 Another piece for Gallery Uptown's March Show, "March Music". Freshwater Pearls, Moonstone, & Sterling Silver bells came together beautifully to form, "Angelic". This piece is $115.00. Please contact me if you're interested.
3/6/2020 I created this gorgeous piece for Gallery Uptown's March show, "March Music". There's a vintage bell from Nigeria, Wedding Beads from Mali, vintage King Beads from Ghana, brass spacers from Africa, olive wood spacers from Afghanistan, coin charms from Afghanistan, & a green, glass pendant from Afghanistan. This piece is $160.00. If you're interested, send me a message via the, "Contact" button above and we can work out all of the details.
2/26/20 This set started with a bracelet that was broken. So, lemonade out of lemons. . .I removed the broken segment and used it to create this necklace. I used Moonstone, Peridot, Sterling Silver, & Aquamarine. While it isn't present in the bracelet, the blue/green color of the Aquamarine beads matches the glow of the Dichroic Glass perfectly. Want her for your very own? $325.00 for the set and I'll even include the cute Moonstone briolette earrings.
2/25/20 I can't wait to wear this! It was a bracelet I hadn't worn in over 10 years. It is now a beautiful and dramatic necklace! Over time, I lost the fear of cutting jewelry apart. Now, nothing is safe. Even the more expensive pieces. If I don't wear it, what's the point in having it? What's the worst that could happen? I hate it? No problem, just use jump rings to reattach the sections and the clasp. What's the best that could happen? THIS NECKLACE!
