Trees of Life...
by a talented new jewelry artist, Kate, of "Accented Elements"! Shown here are two variations of one of Kate's specialties, the "Tree of Life" pendant. I am lucky enough to own one, and every time that I wear it, I receive many compliments about it. (I own the tree of life in amethyst, but all of the colors are beautiful!) Also pictured is that particular design with garnet stones. I have "gifted" friends with the jade colored stones, and also the coral...so easy to find one that "fits" the favorite clothing color of the recipient! She makes beautiful "one of a kind" statement pieces as well.
Not only is this young lady talented in her jewelry making, she also creates felted hats. Her work can be seen at her blog, which she has used to showcase the various media in which she works. Simply click on the headings of the type of work you would like to see to view her hats, (not yet available in her shop, but questions can be sent to her email from this site regarding these), her wrapped jewelry, her feather jewelry, etc. I have a feeling that the list will grow! She has even taught herself to knit and has completed some wonderful projects that may one day be added to her shop! Talent galore! (did I mention that she is also a talented musician??)
She is also doing custom wedding jewelry, and would be happy to entertain requests. I recently commissioned her to create little nest pendants for all of my nieces with pearls that were from their grandmother's necklace. A lovely keepsake, and a beautiful piece of jewelry to add to their collection!
