At the time I
first envisioned this piece, we were in the midst of testing out different
theories of color blending, particularly when using a wide range of
colors. We had several theories and had worked up quite a few projects.
I happened to see an interview with Elizabeth Taylor. She was wearing
a very beautiful, and probably very expensive necklace of precious
stones in all the colors of the rainbow. I said to myself, "Aha,
that's the arrangement."
Using Czech glass
polished rectangles, separated by an alternating pattern of tiny austrian
crystal beads and gold-filled beads, I used a formula for blending
colors. The colors are blended along each strand, and then another
blending occurs, as the two strands are positioned together within
the one necklace composition. The formula positions beads along a
line, inversing hue, saturation and proportion from beginning to end.
As pictured, this
necklace is approximately 32" in length, with a vermeil square
toggle clasp. The necklace is strung on FireLine.
