Vintage Ceramic Necklace LAYAWAY AVAILABLE


My sister's name was Theodora, named after my dad, Theodore, but everyone called her Tedi-Girl. She passed away in the mid 1990's and I still think about her often. She had a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis, which really diminished her quality of life for years. Even though she could barely hold a piece of silverware, or a pen to write her name, she was determined to be creative with her hands despite her physical challenges.

Tedi-Girl's mother-in-law was an artist and instrumental in helping Tedi find a medium that she could work with. The result are these beautiful OOAK pieces. Tedi-Girl became a Duncan Master Ceramist and her original jewelry creations were entered in juried art shows and sold throughout Florida and Las Vegas in the 1980's.

Until recently these pieces have been locked away in a trunk. The time has come to make these pieces available to others to enjoy and wear in the years to come.

My sister loved butterflies so I was not surprised when I saw this piece. Butterflies Are Free seemed to be the perfect way to describe this creation. Creamy colored glazed ceramic with a silk cord tied with love knots makes it feel like the butterflies are floating in mid air. Signed by the artist and created in the 1980's this piece would be a great addition to any fine jewelry box.

LAYAWAY is available. Please convo if you are interested.
