I'm often asked to explain my fascination with eyes. In many myths and cultures the eye is attributed symbolic and talismanic powers. To me, the eye is an open gateway between the inner and outer worlds. They are miraculous machines made of water and light; the deep dark wells of mystery and truth.
The eye cabochons are my own design. They possess a life-like depth and luminescence. Each is subtly unique and has its own qualities and imperfections. The lenses are acrylic, a material I use for its clarity and photograph-ability, so the necklace itself is lighter than it appears. These iris cabochons pendants are set in raw or antiqued brass.
