These freshwater pearls in their impressionist sunset hue, evoke the romanticism of the dreamer. When we become adults, we can shut off the romantic and ephemeral parts of our being. The eleven year old version of ourselves caught between childhood and womanhood, dreaming with the mind of a child of what our adult life will be. The adventures, the epic love and the places and people that would enchant us. To infuse a little of the dreamer into our daily lives brings the expectation for beauty and wonder. Our souls need this to survive!

This neckpiece is a celebration of the Byzantine empress Theodora. North African trade beads, freshwater pearls and glass beads are handcrafted and sewn into a fourth century adornment with an African feel. Theodora was one of the most-influential women of the ancient world. She was a champion of women's rights, and symbolized the union of North Africa, Middle East and the Roman Empire. She was a queen whose controversial past did not define her. She reminds us to forge our own history, and to walk with the mythology of our ancestry to guide us.
