The inspiration for my lookinglass line comes from a Buddhist icon necklace brought back to me from Indonesia by a friend. I loved the two sided box design and notion of jewelry containing an added level of significance. Every pendent is slightly unique thru my combination of paints, patterned papers and imagery. Lookinglass jewelry is handcrafted; sandwiching two archival prints of my images between beveled glass, securing these with copper foil and soldering it all together. The two sides gives the wearer a choice of imagery to face outward or for images backed with text- it is nice to hold that saying close to your heart.
