My theme is The Universal Mother. Embellished with seashells, rose quartz, cowrie shells, crystal hearts, silver goddess pendents, faux pearls, pearl buttons, and a plethora of beads and glitter. What I like most is the contrast between the center Cameo and the enamel cloisonne Minoan Snake Goddess which seems to speak of the classic Madonna/Whore dichotomy. One side has The Goddess of Laussel, the pregant Great Mother. The other side has Australian huntresses, fierce maiden warriors. Spiralling out of the nipples are thin wires coiled and beaded, ending in moon & stars made from Austrian crystal, the universal milky way spilling from the breasts of the goddess.

Hope to see you at the auction!
