The Leaf

Cath Thomas, Switzerland

Background information

Art deco uses stylized nature motifs a lot and I love nature. I wanted this piece to have specific Art Deco geometry, angles, and repetitions. Special attention was given to sleek lines, proportions, negative space, contrast and light — the light can cross the Preciosa princess stones from the sides for increased sparkle. NB: the stones do not fall off. Everything in this piece is my own design.

Technical explanation

Dimensional Peyote stitch for the bezels and the clasps, Diamond Weave for the pearl parts, Fringe. The front bezels are folded hexagons with fully beaded backs protecting the back of the stones.
