In her work , Nessa uses both her original polymer beads,
most often as the piece's primary focus, and some
commercially created beads, usually to support piece's
When creating pendants, she often tries to match the colors
and metallic accents found in her own beads with her
Kumihimo ( a Japanese technique) braids or with her
individually made twisted cords.
Currently her wire work is used to frame or visually enhance
the focal accent of the pendants, earrings, or brooches. She
is also developing stand alone wire pieces, but these are not
yet ready for display.
Many of her pieces have been designed to meet a specific
individual's color and metal preferences.
The three non polymer pieces below were made as special
gifts and used commercially made focal accents selected for
the recipient. The Kumihimo braids were made of the
recipient's favorite colors and metallic accents. Each photo
also shows the clasp used for the particular necklace.
The photos below (except for the necklace in the center of the
second row which was created from commercially produced
beads) show just a few of Nessa' jewelry designs which use
her original polymer beads as their focus. Each of the pieces
seen here was deliberately crafted for a specific person.
