Hovey Lee's Necklace
I collect vintage jewelry and I have always admired the artistry of vintage pins. I just never seemed to find the right outfit to wear them with. A couple years ago I was invited to a Gen Art party for emerging designers and I wanted to wear something spectacular. I searched my jewel box, and my mom's, and couldn't find one that was quite spectacular enough. I decided to make a new one and this necklace was made on the day of the party. My best pieces are what I see as a fusion of art and fashion with an element of surprise.
