Chocolate, Beth Hemmila: garnet, gold filled, sterling and fine silver
This little necklace came about after re-reading Like Water for Chocolate. Of course any movie or novel that deals with chocolate or any other beloved food tends to become my best friend.
I kept this piece simple, using a tiny flaming heart milagro from my shop and then spicing it up with a couple passionate garnets. I've been playing with gold-filled wire and the mix of metals with the deep red seemed to give it a Mexican feel.
With my focus on telling stories through jewelry, I've had fun translating some of my favorite reads into wearable mementos. Anyone else using books as a jumping off point for their creative process? I'd love to hear what you're reading or what stories I've been missing.
