ODE TO THE PAST (with the occasional nod to the present)

Order of the Cross

I am so excited about this collaboration. Jewelry designer Michelle Farmer is working with me to create a custom pendant based on the cover design of The Tenth Saint. I wanted to do this to commemorate the publication of my debut novel.

I had never done anything like this: taking a concept and interpreting it into a piece of wearable art. I found a great partner in Michelle. She's such a pro. She knew exactly how to take the symbol (the stylized cross within a double circle) from the cover and manipulate it to create a gorgeous optical illusion. That elevated the design from something literal to something that was open to interpretation. Isn't that what art is?

The pendants are still being cast in different metals, and I can't wait to see the final product, set with a center stone and dangling from a leather chain. And I surely can't wait to wear it!!
