FIREWORKS feels easy on the neck for an object of its complexity and drama. As you go through the images you see that the horizontal dimension is 5″ and the vertical is 6″. You may wish to measure a necklace that is comfortable using the same positions as shown in the images.

The FOUR pairs of earrings are not for pierced ears. They are omega backs. The images show these from the top in the order that they are removed as pairs. Don’t worry about reassembling the piece and putting the earrings on the necklace. Each earring of a pair has a number: 1,2,3,4. On the necklace itself, the positions are numbered: 1,2,3,4. Clipped to a green alligator band are eight 18k pieces holding the omegas. Each earring is inserted into the matching numbered piece. To describe it sounds more complicated than it is.

The THREE separate brooches have double needles and could also be worn as pendants.

My biggest creative challenge was to make this necklace beautiful when worn only with the clasp or with the clasp and a single brooch (from the three) in the center, and to make all of the gems harmonize no matter which permutation is used. The rare genius of the master jeweler who directed the work over the seven-plus months that he and I spent on FIREWORKS is evident in that there is no trace that anything was ever attached to the movemented “X” frame.
