Helena of Pergamon ©2008 by Cynthia RutledgeKit #3: Black Cherry

Helena of Pergamon is my contemporary tribute to the Hellenistic Period of jewelry making.

Using the Lattice Weave Stitch, a fine mesh strap is made that softly drapes around the neck. The strap ends in two ties that loop over one another for the closure. Taking the design a bit further, pearls are captured within Peyote stitch bezels then hooked together to form geometric shapes. These shapes add embellishment to the mesh at the back of the neck, sides and front, along with the ends of the ties.

The elegance of Helena of Pergamon coincides with the fine examples of jewelry from the Hellenistic period, to form a common language, where we all understand the word, "beautiful".
