This is a collection of jewelry I designed for Papusza Couture's Oceania Etherea collection inspired by birds at the bottom of the ocean.
The Yeti's Mouth
The Yeti's Mouth: Sterling silver, huge chunks of Kyanite, moonstone chips, and beautiful filagree vintage lucite snowflakes. One of a kind.
The Silver Net
The silver net: Miles of sparkly sterling silver chain and Swarovski crystal. This piece never stops moving and glitters like a clear night sky. Similar design can be commissioned.
The Parrot's Aquarium
The Parrot's Aquarium: Sterling, brass chain, chicken feet bones, finch skull, sea horses, buried treasure and Nigel the parrot's feathers. This is a truly one of a kind piece.
Temple drops: These are made of sterling silver, czech glass, Swarovski crystal, golden keshi pearls and lovely eyelash feathers. I like to hang them from a sterling silver chain headband. They look beautiful peeking out from your hair. A similar design can be commissioned.
Spiral Shell Drops
Spiral shell drops: These are made from sterling silver, shells, czech glass and delicate white eyelash feathers. A similar design can be commissioned.
Lagrimas de Oro
Lagrimas de Oro: These are made from 14k liquid gold, vermeil, black spinel, Czech glass. These have amazing movement and sparkle. I've been told these make you feel magical when you wear them. A similar design can be commissioned.
Leaf drops: These are made from vintage Lucite and 14k gold fill. These have amazing movement and make a pretty sound as you move. Delightful to wear! One of a kind!
Fish Eggs in Coral
Fish eggs in coral: These are made from Czech glass, golden coral sticks, seraphinite chips, vermeil and 14k gold fill. A similar design can be commissioned.
Bone Feathers, Pyrite and Coral
Bone feathers, pyrite and coral: These are made from carved bone feathers, chunks of pyrite, and golden coral sticks. These make the most beautiful noise in your ears as you move. I personally love wearing these! A similar design can be commissioned.
Carcass Drops: These earrings are made from sterling silver, finch skulls, abalone, shells, glass and green goose biot feathers. These like to hang from a sterling silver chain headband. They fall beautifully in the hair. One of a kind.
Dewdrop Wrap: This versatile piece is made with glass Swarovski Crystal, glass and sterling silver. It can be worn long, double looped, even triple looped! It can even be worn as a headband or bracelet! The beads are knotted, so the drape is sumptuous and has beautiful movement when worn long. Delicious sparkle! A similar design can be commissioned.
The Atlantean Wrap
The Atlantean Wrap: This piece is made with golden keshi pearls, glass and sterling silver. It can be worn long, double looped, even triple looped! It can even be worn as a headband or bracelet! The beads are knotted, so the drape is sumptuous and has graceful movement when worn long. The pearls glow and the glass shimmers in the light. A similar design can be commissioned.
The Seaweed Hat
The seaweed hat: This piece was made from a gorgeous piece of seaweed I found on the beaches of Big Sur, California, encrusted with a rainbow of Swarovski crystal, then mounted with sterling silver onto a hand-forged copper crown, and finally anchored by a handmade sterling chain and clasp. A one of a kind!
Abalone cuff: This piece was made from a piece of abalone found in the tide pools on Bolinas beach in California and silver pheasant feathers. It is mounted with sterling silver onto a copper cuff. One of a kind!
The Anemone Cuff
The anemone cuff: This piece is made from a piece of coral that washed up on the beaches of Big Sur, California, encrusted with vintage glass gems, with an explosion of peacock and purple goose biot feathers on a copper and sterling silver cuff. One of a kind.
These are all pieces I made many, many
years ago... They have all found homes.
