Not for the Faint of Heart

Not for the faint of heart, this mixed-media necklace combines edgy and classic to create a style all your own. An antique nail pierces a piece of pebbled driftwood, a large freshwater pearl sits atop a cluster of woven wire — all hanging from a stunning 20″ beaded pearl necklace. Made by Connecticut artist and sculptor Kristin Merrill, the pendant measures 6.5″ x .75 and is sure to turn heads! Visit my Etsy Shop to see more pieces like this.

Artist Interview: Kristin Merrill

BY JANE DAVILA, January 2017 I’m starting a series of interviews with some of my favorite artists about their work, their processes, and their inspiration.
