Catherine Mannheim


Crystal, moonstones, rose diamond, pearl. Transparence, translucent, silver and gold.
I have used a reserved palette for this collection, toward monochrome but not.
Lustrous pearls, commonly strung unaccompanied, are here paired with silver and gold.
Darkening moonstones combined with gold. Compositions of muted tones, close, quiet harmonies.
Half light, moonlight dawn and dusk.
