This is my Bargello Fringe Necklace in shades of black, grey and white. This was a new design for me to create but it was inspired by the many "fringe" necklaces I was seeing everywhere and wanted to imitate that look and feel in the clay. For added strength, I inserted sterling wire down the entire length of each "fringe" piece.
The other piece I had entered into the show was my "Emerald Forest" necklace which was a nice surprise to see a juror's ribbon next to it.
It was nice to receive a ribbon when there are so many other worthy artists to choose from. There were 89 artists represented in the show with more than 250 pieces entered. The variety of works ranged from paintings and fibre arts to sculpture and mixed media.
