natural stones…

i have written before about my favourite beading store in singapore – lots of semi-precious and natural stones. as well as selling supplies, they also feature beautiful necklaces made by local artists using their materials. i find these very inspiring – they are often very complicated, large, feature pieces, with combinations of texture and materials that i wouldn’t have immediately expected.

i made this piece inspired by their easy, natural combinations of stone fragments and shards, highlighted by some czech glass beads to provide some contrast and colour. although inspired by singapore, many of these beads are actually from different sources, wooden beads from kenya, sandstones, and various qualities of tiger eye.
