(Disclaimer: Do not try and buy me these to bribe me into liking your manuscript.)
Just as novels are beautiful when they're done well, so is jewelry. Two of my favorite independent designers of handmade jewelry are Kate Holly-Clark and Kythryne Aisling. I bought my mother a pendant (Kate) and neckvine (Kythryne) for her Hanukkah present this past December, each made by their respective artisan. For those that are interested, the picture above is what the custom pendant I had made for my mother looked like. It's a sacred tree, and it's made of copper wire, agate, and laboradite. In real life, it looks a little darker than the picture and the wire is brighter, but it is simply stunning.
Now, these two lovely ladies have some new stuff up for sale on Kythryne's website, and I felt that I just needed to share two of the pieces with all of you.
Pendant by Kate (This is just absolutely gorgeous with its goth vibe and subtle taxidermic tone. It's weird and morbid at the same time--very neat.)
Necklace by Kythryne (Already purchased by someone, alas, but still wildly beautiful.)
Aren't they beautiful pieces of jewelry?
