Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, Maine artist Nance Trueworthy creates her jewelry as one-of-a-kind pieces using freshwater pearls of all shapes and sizes and natural gemstones. She hand selects all of the materials individually, choosing pearls with beautiful luster and gemstones with great color and texture. Each piece carries the wonderful energy of the earth and the sea. Passionate about color and composition, Nance began her jewelry work in 2010.
"All the signature necklaces are made from keshi pearls. The pearls are all different sizes and shapes - as they are organic in nature and that is why i used them. They are interesting and playful and work perfectly with the gemstones and people love them."
