The designer loves ancient jewelry and the challenge of using off-loom beading techniques like tubular herringbone, peyote stitch, and brick stitch to re-create jewelry made with traditional metal techniques. This particular piece was inspired by a Byzantine-style gold necklace she saw at a museum exhibit several years ago.
