Cylindrical glass beads, line of Faience beads
This stunning necklace, part of the Horses series, features what Claire refers to as the Batlo pattern progression from whites to tans, golds, browns, metallic green-purple and black. A line of Egyptian Faience, from Sinai, Middle Bronze Age, 2000-1200 BCE, extends off the chord, playing with the opposite color way in white, tan, warm and cool grays, browns and black. As the chord darkens, the Faience get lighter and as the chord gets lighter the Faience gets darker.
Horses is a series inspired by the color and pattern of a selection of different horses including, Bay, the color of Figaro, who lives in the pasture near my house, Dapple Grey Andalusian, a beautiful horse with dappled grey spots that emerge from a light body and transition to a dark mane, tail and legs and Buckskin, my favorite color. The Buckskin horse is a tan, honey color, with black points.
Before I moved to New Mexico, I admired horses, but was never as aware of their many variations in their color and pattern. Living here, being closer to them, has inspired me to create a series of necklaces that express their beauty.
