SOUTHWESTERN CHIC MEETS BOHO BEAUTIFUL IN MIRIAM'S NEWEST DESIGNER COLLECTION!

Fashionable, Chic, Well-Crafted, and Timeless. Never too dressy... and never too casual!

Jazz up your wardrobe with this new and extraordinary collection of gemstone necklaces created using the finest semiprecious gemstones

matched with handcrafted ceramic beads,including the striking and unusual Kazuri ceramic beads.

Each piece is accented with Sterling Silver and/or handwrought Bronze.

All the bronze is handcrafted using an old-world method and bronze recipe developed by the Charveaux family of metalsmiths in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Kazuri beads are imported from Kenya, crafted by more than 200 women living the the foothills of Mt. Kenya,

who are often the sole providers for their children and families. Each bead is shaped by hand from clay -

fired, painted, fired and glazed, and then fired again in an electric kiln.

Up to five different colors ma y be used on one bead to create the pattern - and no two beads are exactly alike.

 

AFRICAN DREAMS KALAHARI COLLECTION

Named for the beautiful Kalahari Desert in Southwestern Africa, the coloration of the Kazuri beads and Black Onyx Miriam selected reminded her of the Kalahari Lions, a subspecies of lions that live in the Kalahari region. Each of the three necklaces in this collection show the black, golden and reddish brown that distinguish the manes of the male lions that patrol their territory, father the cubs, and discipline the unruly members of their pride. The graceful yet fierce golden brown lionesses make up the majority of the pride, mothering the future leaders, and bringing down the prey that will feed and sustain the pride. The solid black onyx she used is not as common as translucent varieties of onyx, which is banded with white quart

ENCHANTED GARDEN KAZURI COLLECTION

Miriam envisioned a dark and starry night with the Moonbeams of a full moon shining upon a garden filled with the beauty and fragrance of lovely flowers, like Roses and Lilacs... Starting with the deep pink "Kazuri" roses (which are very similar in color to the pinky-peach semiprecious gemstones Rhodochrosite and Rhodonite). More Kazuri flowers to come...

Deep Rose Pink Kazuri Beads with Solid Black Onyx

   

The large solid Black Onyx stones Miriam used provide a bold contrast to the Deep Rose Pink Kazuri beads. The Kazuri beads have an iridescent Mother-of-Pearl ceramic glaze that enhances the multiple-color glazes used to create the handmade beads. The touch of Sterling Silver completes the distinctive look of this necklace.
