Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls of Wisdom Tooth Pendant © Margaux Lange

This pendant was a custom commission for talented artist Amy C. Evans from Mississippi (a fellow MICA alum!) It's made of sterling silver, resin and pearls that were gifted to Amy from a friend of hers, Florida oysterman, A.L. Quick.

Because of the toothy-looking nature of the pearls, we decided to go with a quirky, tooth-themed piece. I'm pleased with the results and Amy was too! Check out some of Amy's fantastic paintings below. Her most recent work can be seen at the Koelsch Gallery in Houston, and you can find even more on her flickr page, her etsy shop and follow along on her wonderful blog Made in Mississippi. Many thanks Amy!

Thanks for the great post, Margaux! And, of course, the awesome necklace. I've been wearing it lots and getting a ton of comments. What a great conversation starter!
