Blue Nile Necklace & Earring Set
We know, we know. Why did Najia name this black piece blue? Because it is. The large rounds are blue tiger’s eye. The camera simply cannot catch the way they gleam in a midnight blue color when the light strikes them just so. Such unusual stones were needed to set off the talent of Laurel Mountain artist, Melissa Blanton.
This necklace is laden with beautiful sterling silver; from the striking bead caps that cup each tiger’s eye round, to the powerful slide clasp. The main focal is of midnight glass with an abstract raku design of colors that overlap each other creating a palette of yellow, blue, taupe, pink, green and purple. Melissa finished the focal with clear glass dots for texture and added small rounds to the set. I incorporated those rounds in the necklace along with glass discs from the torch of a second glass artist, Lori Greenberg; each disc contains tiny specks of the same raku colors encased in clear glass. So you’ll be wearing the art work of three different artists, not counting mother nature.
