From the Vault: Lux et Umbra...

Here's another necklace from "the vault".  I had made it a few months ago for a publication, but for whatever reason, never submitted it.  I think the prompt was creating monochromatic pieces.  In this piece, I used some lovely denim-colored kyanite beads (they're some of my favorites), a polymer clay focal from HumbleBeads, an Anne Choi bead (that reads: "Lux et umbra vicissim sed semprer amor", which translates to, "light and shadows by turns but always love"), freshwater pearls in a stunning shade of blue, and a sterling silver toggle from my family at Green Girl Studios.

I think the pendant sums up the quote perfectly.  The pendant shows a bird in a nest with its egg.  I think there is something to be said about the love of a mother.  Even though there may be ups and downs, there's always love.
