Couture Line Portrait Tile Jewelry

I've blogged about this before, but so many of you have been asking me about this boutique offering in the last two weeks (five of you at the studio this evening!) that I think another blog post is in order.

I just recently introduced a new line of portrait jewelry - each piece is one of a kind! The tiles are made of large pieces of mother of pearl; the beading on the necklace is made of precious and semi-precious stones, organic materials, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals and top-of-the-line Beadlion wire with Sterling silver components. The artisan who makes these pieces chooses each bead with care - she does not buy in lots.

The price is $195. They are available to all of my clients. If you prefer, you may choose to buy only the tile charm for $100.

If I have created portraits for you since April 2007 and you would like to order one of these necklaces with one of your portraits on it, please contact me. I will be happy to go over the choices with you:

-Necklaces are available in several color combinations, or can be custom-designed to match the portrait on the tile. The artisan just debuted her new "Center Stage Couture" necklace that she designed with my own unique work in mind. Ask me to see my sample of the Center Stage Couture necklace. I also own a necklace of jet beads (her "Midnight Couture") to go with a black-and-white tile of my own children - I will be happy to show you that necklace, too.

- The tiles can be ordered in three sizes.

- The necklaces come in three lengths (or extended lengths for a small additional charge).
