I find my garden a constant source of inspiration. The Art Nouveau movement also took cues from nature and wove them into lovely sensuous forms. Pate de verre was featured in much Art Nouveau jewelry. It was created with glass ground down and refired in molds to give the appearance of opaque stones. Using liquid PEARL polymer, tinted with alcohol inks, I created a pendant necklace piece of multiple molded pieces with a nod to pate de verre.
