This necklace gets it’s title from a lovely lady I met in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Meeting in her shop we started to chat. In the course of our conversation she said, “Ahh- this necklace is a PHOENIX!”. Whereupon she showed me where she saw the head, the body, the tail-feathers, and even hints of flame surrounding it.
And she was dead right- I could see the Phoenix immediately upon her exclamation; as though we were two kids seeing the same exact same Chimera while watching clouds.

It’s plumage consists of groupings of tiny see beads, clusters of freshwater pearls, pieces of turquoise and other semiprecious stones all framed within thick free-form coils of thin-gauged colored wire.
Free moving chains, that might well represent tail-feathers, dangle as though in flight.

This necklace marks a new style of jewelry for me- even more labor-intensive and detail obsessed than usual (and even further “over-the-top” if that’s possible).

Though always fun to wear, the necklace assumed a truly mystical quality when grouped with the exquisitely colored silk goods in that little shop- and so it really is a sort of Phoenix after all.
