This recent Square knot necklace was inspired by the graphic and contrasting colors in the plumage of a Northern Flicker. Mother Nature is the most incredible designer! It’s all hand woven in tubular herringbone stitch, accented with stones of yellow jade, recycled glass and hand blown glass. 18″ in length. I think I would like to create a whole series of bird-inspired jewelry!

I just returned from a wonderful show in Kansas City this weekend: the Brookside Arts Annual. We had great weather and great crowds. It was the fourth time I have done this show, and it was my best! Here are a couple of photos of one of my FAB customers, Marsha with her new cuff, as well as resplendently decked out in Julie Powell Designs work on Saturday afternoon! Thank you Kansas City!marsha and julie 2
