The modern simple bow

Those that know me know that I am not exactly a girly girl, lover of flowery things, and never wanted to be a princess when I grew up.

So I got an interesting custom request this past weekend. A great buyer asked me if I could make her a simple bow pendant. She wanted it to look tied. I told her that I would see what I could do, and sat down with my copper "practice" wire to work out a design.

Maybe divine inspiration took over, but in a matter of moments a super simplistic bow of silver wire was created and I was shocked how much I liked it. It looked modern, simple, sleek...words that I don't normally associate with a bow! I liked it so much I added it to my shop and even made one for myself!

Sometimes it's good to be pushed to think outside the box, or for me, outside my always modern mantra. Even a bow can be modern now.

So here it is....a great piece to give as a gift for a special occasion, definitely remembered each time the bow is worn.


  1. Very sweet and pretty! I love it! GOOD JOB!

  2. This is one of the items that drew me to your shop. Simple beauty.
