Bowl of Diamonds Necklace "My cup runneth over" Aka ("Palm Beach ") Bezel set diamonds falling from a bowl with sand blasted finish in center and high polish on the edges.
The first time I was in Palm Beach, I noticed a surprising number of diamonds over 10 carats. Not just engagement rings and studs, but tennis bracelets and necklaces. It occurred to me that all the people had bowls of overflowing diamonds in their homes, and that when the diamonds fell to the floor, they were too troublesome to retrieve and were kicked under tables and carpets instead. The image of this jewelry came to mind. All I had to do was bring it into reality.
Why do we, as a species and as individuals, have to constantly remind ourselves to have gratitude when we know it brings up happiness? Why do we overlook our own blessings? What ever you call it; mindfulness, intention, awareness, being grateful for our blessings enables us to appreciate them so much more.
Having said that, as an artist I love when people reinterpret my work. This was the case when a woman contacted me to say that she had made a resolution when she turned 50 to give and give and give for the rest of her life. She wanted to give love, caring, time, knowledge everything that she is, so that she could die an empty vessel. She saw the bowl with diamonds spilling out as representative of her new life mission. The joke is on her - - the more you give, the more you have. You give yourself away to find yourself.
The bowl can be fixed on a chain, clip enhancer, pin/ pendant. Bowls available in large or small size, as necklace, earrings, rings, inter-changeable pendant, bracelets, cuff-links, and lapel pins, Anything can be customized for you, using any color and karat of gold, sterling silver with plate options, and platinum. Diamonds can also be changed for colored stones.
The large bowl is about the size of a quarter, but much thicker. It has approximately 38 points of G-VS diamonds (very white and sparkly)
Gifts, even a gift to ourselves, touches the heart- makes us feel loved. Gifts with meaning, jewelry with meaning, even more. It becomes a talisman, worn as reminder of our core values, carries us through times when we waver. Inspirational jewelry opens conversations (sometimes with ourselves) and becomes so much more than an object. It's life.
