SUSAN PRIDHAM'S NEW COLLECTION: MANY TIDES
I have always been intrigued by the notion of transformation. What was once a bottle or jar has become a gem at the waters edge, and what was once a bit of sand in an oyster is now a beautiful pearl. The pearl is the jewel of June and the only birthstone that is not a stone. As a June baby myself I have always loved them and thoroughly enjoy designing with them. I used to look at pearls in my mothers jewelry box and think of the moon. While there are many takes on pearl and leather combinations the bracelet in this collection is my offering. Big yummy luminous pearls are strung and knotted on leather with sterling silver accents from Bali and hand forged clasp. The glass featured in my Many Tides collection is recycled glass tumbled to emulate beach glass and put together using sterling silver and lots of attention to detail making the pieces not only pretty but also comfortable to wear. There are also many examples of found sea glass in the store. We like to refer to them as “farm raised” and “wild caught” Blue Ruth can also turn your little treasure into a wearable keepsake as well.
