...and I have re-discovered the beauty of Savannah that sparked my original desire to move here. Each block I have walked, is steeped in history & southern charm, beautiful colors & unique architectural details abound. Already, I have taken so many photos for inspiration, that I could literally fill an entire wall in my studio. That joyous excess has resulted in the creation of a new collection for summer comprised of one of a kind pieces inspired by my lovely new hometown! The very first piece in this collection is available for preview online, the Moss earrings, inspired by the enchanting Spanish moss draped on trees throughout the city...
Plump faceted prasiolite (green amethyst) briolettes are topped with a cluster of faceted London blue topaz, blue-grey sapphire, mystic topaz and a single white akoya pearl, all on handcrafted solid 18k gold pins. Finished with solid 18k gold french wires.
The entire Savannah Collection will be available online this Summer, but be sure to check back soon as I will be posting exclusive previews on my blog as the pieces in this new collection are created.

Soon Passementerie's website will feature an interactive order form and more examples of Bespoke pieces that have been created for our clients, like the 36" chain of solid 18k gold and white keshi & seed pearls pictured above.

The project was put on hold for a little due to my move, and I am just now able to begin creating the chains of gemstones and the long, cascading pendant...once this necklace is finished it is going to be VERY difficult to part with!
