Greek Nature - Sea shells

Beautiful beaches in Greece wash up  beautiful small treasures waiting to be discovered. Empty sea shells  with their different shapes, colors & forms  is the most popular theme in the art world, especially in jewels. Every time an artist is dealing with a popular subject his/her challenge is how the form will be treated, what techniques and materials will be used (Click here for more photos).

Observation of branches and how they entangle is the main theme of this necklace. Each branch is formed in its own unprompted, unique way, but not randomly. It is similar to how our life is formed through the choices we make.
