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.
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".
