Collaboration

I've been presented with a very exciting opportunity to collaborate with a talented local glass artist, Duane Perrett of Snow City Glassworks. He handed me some of his fabulous dichroic glass and I let my imagination run wild to create some wonderfully wearable works of art. 1) This flower pendant is crocheted in fine silver around a shimmering dichroic centre, and hangs from a sterling silver chain with handforged sterling clasp.

2) This glass pendant is set in a sparkling crocheted silver bezel. Iridescent black shell pearls linked in sterling silver provide the perfect accent.

3) This piece is a bit of a fantasia in hammered sterling silver, swirling sensuously down to the shimmering depths of the focal pendant.

4) And finally, a crocheted silver setting showcases this dichroic piece with elegant simplicity. These pieces will be on display in the showcase at the Fairmont Chateau Mallard Lounge (Whistler) and may be purchased through the Fairmont Chateau Art Gallery.

I especially love the third one, though the colour of the glass in the the other three is my favourite glass colour combination. But the freewheeling design of that third necklace...gorgeous.
