More Info and IMHO:

Completely self taught, I hand knotted this years ago. Running a bunch of beads on a string or cable is too easy and just not for me. If it's easy I get bored and can't be part of it. More effort must be given to the collector! Every square millimeter of sterling was hand fabricated/ wrought by my two hands. No imported prefab metal components were used.

Please note the chain that I made myself as the necklace's extension, the earrings' stations and the bracelet's stations. Rare is the metal artist who makes each link themselves as it is too time consuming and hard on the hands. PS, who else handknots these days? While others run their beads on a cablewire, I must continue with the old ways: knots between each bead to provide fluidity and security against breakage or loss.

It would be much easier to use imported tribesmen silver beads/material from faraway lands, but my conscience just won't let me. Let's say that I purchased 1/2 foot of imported ornate chain @ $19.35 (circa 2001 prices). The vendor/importer selling to me would have paid 1/10th that or less, which means some poor man toiled a 8-10 hour day for less than $2. I will not be part of taking advantage of a third world worker.

Let us for a moment forget that and look at what this really means: by acquiring this here, you will be the proud owner of a signed 4 pc parure collectible made by an artist you know, who will guarantee the work and you will own the only one. That's another point: I buy just enough product(these beads were collected many years ago) to one piece create, but not to duplicate.

Aesthetics and just for fun: Oh glorious lucky red coral, the color of blood and symbol of the life force, used in ancient times on amulets to "ward off the evil eye".

This will look just smashing on any color skin. Blondes,brunettes,redheads or greyheads of box or not, dare to wear!
