JHM Atelier Necklace 001

JHM 41 - Focus: Murano Tiger Pendant
Stones & Beads - Gold Indian Silk, Gold & Black Murano, Natural and Carved Onyx and Quartz. Price: Sold

To celebrate my fifth birthday, my Father flew all the way in from a meeting in Hong Kong -- not a short trip in those days -- and took me to lunch at "21." When I finally looked up from the mound of sorbets and profiteroles, he opened a slim red box and presented me with my first piece of serious jewelry. When I raced home to show my Mother, she was thoroughly appalled and said so, not quietly, but I was hooked. And remain so. To me, nothing completes a woman's look better than a stunning necklace. It sets off and frames her face in a way that nothing else can.

Through the years, I've learned that it's not the size and weight of the stones that makes a great design, but the composition, selection and arrangement. The core principle of each design must be fluid, so that each element flows into and enhances the effect of the others. That's precisely our focus at JHM ATELIER. Stones, jewels, beads and unique medallions and pendants from all over the world, carefully matched, arranged and hand-strung into one-of-a-kind works of art. Necklaces that are as dramatic as they are unique.

My partner of many years, Jerry Brown, and I have recently opened JHM Studio in Los Angeles to offer unusually beautiful antiques, crystal, china and works of art for sale in our eBay store. Between the Atelier and the Studio, we offer elegance, drama and exotic beauty to enhance women's lives.
