A Pueblo Indian pot was the inspiration for this necklace. Using a photograph of the pot, I graphed a design that pays tribute to the beauty of the original pot, in shades of cream, rust and black. It is finished with long, flowing fringe, including 30mm matte copper glass bugle beads and amber chips. The entire necklace, with the exception of the fringe, was made on a loom, and also features sections beaded in a dramatic geometric design in cream and black, as well as another area in rust, black and cream, backed in leather, at the back of the necklace.
A ceramic cabochon with a masked Native American figure, pueblo and cornfield in shades of lavender, rose, turquoise and seafoam green on a cream background provides the focal point for this unique necklace. It is finished with long fringe, including 30mm cobalt blue bugle beads and Sodalite chips. The necklace is loom-beaded in colors to harmonize with the cabochon and fringe in Native-American-inspired patterns.

This loom beaded necklace features a horse decorated for battle, with clouds, pine trees and bold geometric designs in white, yellow, red and black on a turquoise background. It has long fringe with Amazonite chips and an asymmetrical design, with 12 strands of strung beads on one side and loomwork on the other. Many, many hours went into planning, designing, graphing and beading this one-of-a-kind piece.
This necklace is my attempt to capture some of the beauty of a Navajo woven rug in beads. It is done in traditional colors of black, red, gray and white in a geometric rug pattern. The fringe is finished with mother-of-pearl chips and the necklace has several other sections of loom beading in the same color of the rug design, also in geometric patterns. The ends of the beading are joined at the back of the neck and backed in leather for comfort and strength.
