Designs in the Light Convertibles

Happy New Year 2015!!..................

Mike and I are busy behind the scenes wrapping up our winter business and organizing our studio with plans for the kickoff of 2015. 

Grapevine 1

Our convertible necklace collection was introduced this fall at the Harvest Festivals. We are still in the development stages and we are excited to share our progress with you. 

You choose your investment piece, a handmade solid bronze focal. 
Mike designs these and they are created beginning with metal clay and in a multi step process he begins with choosing or creating his design. 

He forms and textures the front and back of the focal.  Next he sands, finishes the fine details in the greenware state, fires it in a kiln, hand forged, tumbles, chooses patina technique, hand polishes and seals it with renaissance wax to preserve it. 

Beaded 15" Backs 
 Next you have a choice of Cherrie's many beaded necklace backs. This batch comes in 15" choker length. They wrap around your neck and hook on the focal. You can order additional backs to make it a convertible necklace that changes with your wardrobe. 
Grape Leaf 2
We have two grape leaf designs, two tree of life designs, a cross and our granada design so far. 

Tree of Life 2 
Next Mike is planning designs in copper clay and silver PMC clay. We will offer 18" beaded backs on special order in several color ways and also a coordinated chain option in several lengths.

If you see one you love please send us a message. We are still deciding on how we might  be adding this collection to our website.

Pricing for the collection as shown here in this post is $125 for the focal, and $50 for the backs with special pricing on additional backs ordered at the same time.

We have been listing new designs in both shops so be sure to check it out. Etsy Designs in the Light  and our website Designs in the Light and be sure to check out our galleries on the website as we are adding lots of pictures of our work.

    1. Thanks Miss Erin, This idea was inspired by one of our favorite mentors and we made it our own design and styling to fit our collections. We are all about multi possibilities, and layering etc. We are always looking for ways to make it fun with each of us and our creative gifts. Thanks for commenting. "Follow the Light" Cherrie
