Jewelry-as-Art! 
 
 
Welcome to White Tideline Designs ~ Jewelry as Art!  Sit back with a cup of tea and pause, for just a while... taking in the stories & beauty of handcrafted artisan glasswork, hand-cast sterling silver shapes, charms & findings blended with earthy, luminous faceted gems which, when combined together, make lyrical & edgy sculptural design. Every piece here has a name and a story. When my muse calls, I sit down to create one-of-a-kind pieces which turn into compositions & sculpture of color, shape & glimmering landscapes. Often former travels serve as my muse ~  the cobbled streets of Paris' Montmartre, the winding roads of medieval Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Or the brave, open expanse of Norwegian tundra known as Finnmarksvidda located above the Arctic Circle; the mysterious Incan & Mayan ruins, jungles and rivers, dense with awe & intrigue or the quiet majesty of Antarctica ~ these places & more are a force behind my designs. Simple watercolors by my children or shapes, textures & colors of our garden throughout the seasons ... all serve as my endless & abundant muse.  My design signature is the extraordinary lampwork glass beads which are carefully crafted by a curated list of skilled artists located both here and abroad, using a hot torch and colorful rods of glass which are shaped, sharpened and turned into beautiful glass beads.  Known as 'lampwork,' each bead is its own work of art - radiant glass frozen in a landscape of fine, interesting lines, caverns & tangles of beautiful, clean color.  Annealed by kiln, these beads are difficult to break and make for an enduring piece of wearable art.  Much of my work incorporates some of earth's most beautiful, high-grade stones and gems which accent most designs when cut and faceted just the right way, along with handsome, rogue sterling silver components crafted by precious metal artists. The combination of studio glass, stone, gems & sterling can be compelling while creating an enduring piece of glass and stone art.  My work has been showcased by a Martha's Vineyard art gallery, a select group of boutiques & artisan markets.
 
Revel in the joyous distraction of studio glass & stone & bright silver and the way light is caught in a thousand colors as you marvel at your own lustrous moments of being alive!

"Carnevale, II"
"Carnevale, II"
"Carnevale, II"
#2226 "Carnevale, II"
'Carnevale, II' is gallery-calibre 2-strand wrap bracelet made entirely of studio lampwork beads, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. One of my more LUXE designs, this is a complex bracelet design in the 'spirit' genre; a complex design invoking the rich, ancient, colorful & beloved tradition of 'Carnevale,II' in Italy. On my first ever trip to Italy to attend a conference, I took the train after the event from Milano to Florence. Staying in a beautiful, but old hotel housed in the upper floors of an ancient building overlooking the River Arno and a few doors down from the Uffizi Museum, I was given the room used in the film, 'A Room with View.' The owner of the hotel (3rd or 4th generation in the same family) took me to my room himself and as he threw open the green shutters, just like in the movie, he pronounced, 'A Room with a View!' as, gasping, I beheld the River Arno and the Ponte Vecchio, feeling like I was in a beautiful dream as that film had captured my soul. However, I was so new to Florence (and had planned my trip in such haste), I had no idea that as it was February, it would also be the beginning of Carnevale. I wandered out from my dreamy hotel into the streets one warm, sultry February night and was swept up in folds of time, of centuries upon centuries once folded neatly, one onto the other - it was as if the sultry winds off the river were suddenly shaking the boundaries of time into the wild, warm air as all the creases blurred; the neat outlines which had divided time into years, decades and centuries became all but a beautiful and confused blur. I felt like I was spinning as I beheld the masked & costumed people from the Medieval time, out-and-about, making merry, singing, laughing, drinking under the golden lights of old temples, marketplaces and the great Duomo. It seemed like I wandered for hours, as if in a dream throughout the lanes and side-streets of Firenze until I felt quite lost, only to walk on and find myself miraculously back in front of my hotel. It is a night I will never forget where time, as we understand it, fell apart at the seams and I experienced one of the richest, most curious nights of my life. This bracelet, 'Carnevale, II,' honors and is named after just such a night in Florence, Italy at Carnival time and my memories of the colorful, regal, velvet fabrics of costumed Italians enjoying one last blitz before settling down for its somber opposite, Lent.

This piece, as with other recent designs, is dripping with top-flight artisan lampwork beads (by 5 different artists both here and abroad) and components. Starting with the bright focal beads of the piece are two large, textured, colorful red/orange beads, brightly textured with dots, spots and raised portals along with gold leaf & wild, modern blooms. Other lampwork include two square 'tile' shaped beads with raised decorations done in lilac and muted orange along with a complimentary round bead in similar shades of purples, oranges and reds. Several organic discs of glass in aqua, cream, blue and orange punctuate the design along with luxe faceted aquamarine rondelles, a stunning pink amethyst nugget, sterling silver beads, rings, spacers and beadcaps.  

"Carnavale, II" is completed with an elegant etched sterling silver toggle clasp and measures 8" in length. Please note that this style of bracelet (a wrap, 2 strand design) is meant to be worn rather loosely. Resizing at purchase & prior to shipping is done at no extra charge. Subsequence re-sizings will incur a fee of $50 to cover time, materials and return postage.

#2225 Mermaid Cove by Rockaway Beach
Even though we drift ever so slowly toward summertime and road-trips to the sea, I am of the mind that it is never too soon to make a seaside journey if only by design. "Mermaid Cove" is a piece that reminds me of the many day trips I used to make with my grandmother when I was a child to her former home by the sea in Northern California.  We would leave the hot suburbs east of San Francisco and head toward the city, bypassing S.F. for the shortcut to the Pacific Ocean and the town of Pacifica.  On our way, winding down the steep highway along the coast (and before urban sprawl came down to the sea at Pacifica), we would tuck into a tiny corner of the world called, 'Rockaway Beach.'  It was not big enough to be called a village.  It was not a marina.  It was just a handful of old buildings from the 1920's and 1930's (as if from prohibition days), set against a cement breakwater where waves crashed in and raised up in a watery rage that was at once frightening as it was exhilarating.  Grandma would have packed tuna fish sandwiches, a few bananas and some milk and we would eat our lunch in the car, with our windows rolled down beside the breakwater, listening to the rage and powerful roar of the ocean.  I was quite young and it always felt the such a spirited adventure requiring us to be full of courage and might - to go sit beside such a tempestuous Pacific Ocean, meeting at last, at the land of the west coast.
 
As such, 'Mermaid Cove at Rockaway Beach' is yet another of my newer designs from my Simple Luxe Collection. This piece is a premier lampwork, gemstone 'wrap' bracelet.  That is, two strands of lamp work beads by no less than 5 curated artists who use fine German or Italian glass rods (in a glass studio setting) who create each bead with amazing attention to detail, color & texture.  'Mermaid Cove at Rockaway Beach' also includes stones, gems and sterling (925) silver beads, findings, components and a  SS toggle clasp.
 
"Mermaid Cove at Rockaway Beach," is a two-strand wrap-bracelet of lampwork, sterling and gemstone done in shades of  blue, lime green, periwinkle, turquoise and peppered with cobalt, clear and dripping with the deep silver shine of handcrafted and ornate sterling silver findings and components.  It is full of unique studio glass beads made by the talents of five esteemed glass artists located both here and abroad.  You will find a plethera of shapes and sizes of lampwork (glass beads made by torch/glass rod in a studio setting & kiln-annealed for durability).  Some beads are textured in shapes including  discs, rondelles, rounds & a tube bead with some beads encased over a colored core & embedded with sterling and others, etched like beach glass.  Along with such a rich variety of lampwork glass beads, you will also find companion gems including faceted aquamarine and quartz rondelles, cream-colored Baroque pearls, blue-fire flash moonstone rondelles, micro-faceted iolite beads all of which, taken together, create a combination that is at once captivating and elegant.  The ensemble of artisan glass beads includes a focal etched blue and green/cobalt etched lentil bead textured like beach glass.  Two elegant clear rounds, one encased in white and one encased in blue are infused with actual sterling silver droplets, buried deep within the glass, making for a dreamlike wave effect, as if caught under glass.  Lampwork discs & an organic round punctuate the design along with Swarovski sterling & crystal rondelles, thick SS rings, Bali silver beads & bead caps and a variety of shapes and sizes of Swarovski crystals including sterling silver rondelles embedded with small clear and colored crystals.  The most powerful focal point of the bracelet, however, is the elegant sterling silver hand-cast sailboat button-bead at the center of one strand.  This solid, sterling bead is sumptuous and mesmerizing and is made by hand, using the old wax technique.  A beautiful vintage, SS mermaid charm along with a SS rowboat & Swarovski encrusted sterling flip-flop charm completes the design along with a sterling Bali silver toggle clasp. The whole bracelet composition reminds me of the strong winds & wild waves of the Pacific crashing against the cliff walls, like on those days with Grandma at 'Mermaid Cove at Rockaway Beach' beside the breakwater and the husks of old prohibition buildings in that small corner on the west coast. "Mermaid Cove at Rockaway Beach" measures 8.5 inches.*
 
*   Please note that the wrap-design is meant to be worn a little more loosely than other bracelet designs.

'Renoir Afternoon'

'Renoir Afternoon'
#6621 'Renoir Afternoon'

One delightful memory from my university years was the day I had to go to declare my major. It was a sunny, beautiful Autumn day in Berkeley, California and I was up at Strawberry Pool, just beyond the football stadium where I relaxed before heading down to campus to meet my major professor for the first time. I was a little pressed for time, having run into one Greek God too many at the pool. As such, I did not take the time to change into more proper campus attire. Instead, I dashed down to campus in cut-off shorts, a red top and my running shoes, uncertain of the protocol of my meeting. To my relief, I was warmly welcomed into Professor Renoir's office and we sat and had a relaxed chat which was at times funny, touching and always genuine. He told me to come to him with any problems I might be having both in school or in my private life or if I just needed to talk. We spoke of his 'favorite girl,' and he pointed at her large portrait on his door - CoCo, the gorilla who could communicate using sign language. When he asked me what I wanted to 'be' when I grew up, I told him that I wanted to be an actress. I felt so at ease with the professor that it was with total abandon that I spoke of my desire to pursue the stage and screen. He listened to me and only after I was done, ever so gently told me that he had many family members who had been in film and theatre and they had known frequent sorrow. I took his words to heart, but it was only some weeks after our meeting that I learned that my dear Professor Renoir was the son of the great film director of "La Grande Illusion," Jean Renoir. Professor Renoir was therefore also the grandson of the luminous French painter, Pierre-Auguste Renoir. In this past week, as I worked with my palette of glass artisan beads in all their spring colors, blending shades of violet, blue, pink with a splash of orange - that I was reminded of Professor Renoir's grandfather and of that warm, autumn day up at Strawberry pool and afterwards, when I dashed down to campus to declare my English major to such a kind & gentle grandson of a great painter. 


'Renoir Afternoon' is an all-artisan crafted, gallery-calibre, double-strand wrap bracelet made entirely of studio & sculptural lampwork glass beads, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. Another LUXE design, this is a complex bracelet design in the 'spirit' genre; a complex design invoking the wild moving, alive energy of a time and place gone by and all that means in terms of life and our call upwards to a God or to Gods & Goddesses to help shepherd us on this journey of life. 

'Renoir Afternoon', as with others in my LUXE collection, is awash in top-flight artisan lampwork beads (by 12 different artists located both here and abroad), sterling silver beads & components including beautiful Bali & Thai Hilltribe silver beads and a hand-cast sterling daisy toggle made using the old wax technique. Central to the design, inherent in 'Renoir Afternoon,' is a sumptuous floral focal bead by a local gifted artist. The striking 3-D floral bead shares focus of the bracelet with an amazing long, rectangle lampwork bead by an esteemed German artist. It is as if she paints watercolors in molten glass as she forms her beads in the flame. The painting in this particular bead is of an Iris and Poppy garden in the late afternoon. It is the perfect bead around which to build the rest of the bracelet design both in theme and color. Other glass studio beads include bright sculptural strawberry & blackberry beads, thick violet poppies, whimsical blue encased daisy lentils, elegant disc beads in a variety of colors, a single 'bubble' blue round, looking like so much water in a pond. Among my very favorite lampwork beads in the entire design are organic encased small rounds which have a bumpy texture of rich clear glass and vibrant colors encased in the bead core. I don't know how the artist does it, but her beads always have a wet appearance and make any design just *pop*. A variety of smaller and organic lampwork rounds dangle down around the main strands along with gemstones and sterling. Other beads include glass furnace beads (little 'chubs') by David Christensen in violet & pink; elegant & luminous Baroque pearls, faceted chalcedony, quartz & cubic zirconia briolettes, blue-fire flash moonstone discs, micro-faceted blue flourite, a purple amethyst rondelle, a pink aquarmarine nugget, Sleeping Beauty turquoise chips & most elegant of all, pink sapphire faceted 'tyre' shaped beads which I have stacked together like so many standing-stones. Buried in the design is a very tiny ancient lapis bead from Asia Minor added for that mystical touch, that symbolic 'ties that bind' those of us who are so drawn to beads now and in the long-distant past.

Three bright sterling daisy charms pepper 'Renoir's Afternoon' along with Swarovski sterling & clear crystal rondelles, a thick sterling ring and a vast range of Swarovski crystals in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. 

'Renoir Afternoon,' measures just a tad under 7.5 inches. A 6 inch wrist ought to fit well without being too tight and with just the right amount of slack to make it comfortable and considering the density (but not a heavy weight) of the bracelet. "Renoir Afternoon" can be re-sized at no additional fee as this is a relatively straightforward task to complete. One resizing upon purchase is included in the price, however should subsequent adjustments be required, an additional fee of $50 to cover postage, time & materials will be charged.

When I was a small child, my parents bought waterfront property on a remote island in British Columbia, Canada where they subsequently built a modest A-frame cabin.  This was the early 1960's and back then the only people sharing our rustic island were a small handful of families, most with children close in age to the three of us children.  As the island was so beautifully vacant of people & cottages or roads or shops or really much of anything beyonds its natural splendor, it was a child's paradise.  As such, we kids named parts of the island so that we could quickly identify places to meet for play.  There was 'the springs,' a densely wooded spot where natural springs erupted, bubbling cold & clear from the sandy banks of the island and dribbling all the way down to the tideline on the white beach below.  There was the "Indian Camp' above it on the flatlands within the forest where the Coast Salish First Nation people (in times gone by) had their summer camp, the remnants of which still stood beside bright middens, white with shell leavings.  Then there was the 'Sunset Trail' round Indian Point where we would gather after a full day of play to behold the sun sink ever so slowly behind the snowy peaks of distant Vancouver Island.  And 'the Meadows' - a long bike ride up the Wharf Road and  following a more narrow logging road to the wide, open and dry open space where snakes were plenty and the visage seemed to 'sing' with crickets in the hot & otherwise quiet midday sun.  And finally, there was 'the dunes,' which was the space exactly at the tip of 'Indian Point' and facing North towards Desolation Sound and the Strait of Georgia.  The Dunes were like gentle folds of silk fabric with strands of grasses amidst the shine of fine sand all alone except for one grand turn-of-the-century log cottage which was set back against the woods. All of these places made up our daily destinations, where we planned our days whilst the tide was out all day and before our play could find voice in the lovely, warm full sea, the tide now high and our great big raft at the ready, anchored by the buoys. It is in memory of those beautiful dunes that I created its namesake, reveling in the modest, rich colors of sand mixed with sea, driftwood and strands of fine grasses.  Our island has changed a lot in the past 50 years with cottages and houses cluttering the once vacant places, replacing forests and woods with so much form and noise - so different from those early, golden years when we were children and had paradise in the palm of our hands and somehow knew it.  

'The Dunes' is an all-artisan crafted, gallery-calibre 2-strand wrap bracelet made entirely of studio lampwork glass beads, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. Another LUXE design, this is a complex bracelet design in the 'spirit' genre; a complex design invoking the wild moving, alive energy of a time and place gone by and all that means in terms of life and our call upwards to a God or to Gods & Goddesses to help shepherd us on this journey of life.  

This piece, as with others  of my LUXE collection,  is awash in top-flight artisan lampwork beads (by 5 different artists both here and abroad), sterling silver beads & components including beautiful Bali & Thai Hilltribe silver beads and a Bali sterling silver toggle clasp.  Central to the design, inherent in 'The Dunes' is a small collection of disc lampwork beads by a few artists.  You will find modern metallic and iridescent discs, some with polka dots, others in soft, solid taupe or as if coated in golden sand and yet others rubbed down to an earthy, worn look and still others like beach glass discs.  Following the same pattern are stone disc-shaped gems of steel blue iolite, quartz, blue topaz, blue-fire moonstone, encased organic lampwork beads which look like watercolor paintings inside glass pods of irregular shape and size. Other beads include elegant golden Baroque pearls, clear chunky lampwork squares, small white lentil lampwork beads by a Florence-trained glass artist, faceted nuggets of green Aquamarine stones and shimmering grey faceted quartz briolettes. Over 40 pieces of sterling silver findings, beads and components pepper 'The Dunes,' sending glimmers of bright light throughout the piece as the sunlight hits it at certain angles. One large & 2 smaller scallop shells in solid silver enjoy the focus of the bracelet along with beautiful Swarovski  sculpturalcrystals in the shapes of starfish & coral branches, making for a staid, elegant and fetching statement-design of serenity beside the sea which is so imbued with mystery and myth.  'The Dunes' measures just a tad over 8.5 inches.   My 7 inch wrist fits this 8.50 inch bracelet perfectly without being too tight and with just the right amount of slack to make it comfortable.   "The Dunes" can be re-sized at no additional fees as this is a relatively straightforward task to complete. One resizing upon purchase is included in the price, however should subsequent adjustments be required, an additional fee of $50 to cover postage, time & materials will be charged.
