Carolyn continued to work in the field of conservation and I slowly made my way to making jewelry full time but our love for faience continued through all these years.
The Gods collection is a homage to the Egyptian mythology, history and artistry along with a long jewelry history as seen below in this 1926 Cartier scarab belt buckle. These one of a kind pieces honor the goddess Isis worshiped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. The Scarab necklace is a symbol of the heavenly cycle and of the idea of rebirth or regeneration.
Carolyn and I continue the research and are excited to unveil these one of a kind jewelry pieces NOW in the collection ~ The Gods.
Carolyn continues her amazing work at the MET as seen by her research project spotted on the front page of The New York Times.
