From the Middle Ages through the Renaissance to today beaded necklaces have been worn by Women of great style for their intrinsic properties.
The Divine Life collection of beaded necklaces represent beauty + strength + tradition + deep love + devotion from different cultures.
Beads collected from Africa + India + China + Thailand are cultural monikers used in everyday life ceremonies and rites of passage.
As part of tradition, many cultures give visitors beads as a sign of gratitude + respect.
I created these collection to represent the unification of a global culture. Each piece is hand knotted on silk + finished with a handmade Italian silk tassel.
