Well. After our visit to the house at Angaston, we are now thoroughly confused. We were not expecting an Arizonan ranch-style inspired house at all! Built in 1964, Leon and I were impressed with the architecture, and now have the unpleasant - but neccessary - task of working out if we can actually afford this beauty!

Looking for our perfect chair for our wonderful table (which I will eventually photograph and show you!) we ended up deciding on these. A fabulous Eames replica - comfortable, surprisingly sturdy, and ultra stylish). While searching for the "perfect chair", I stumbled across some other Eames designs, that I was not quite so familiar with.

Named for the fabulous spice - smoked paprika - the Pimentón Ahumado necklace is graced by a curved and delicate pendant, enhanced with rich AAA spessartite garnet pointed briolettes.
The pendant has been painstakingly wirewrapped and enhanced with teensy pyrite rondelles - which I love to use, as it gives the appearance of marcasite - I have also used some smooth sterling silver rounds. A length of chain has been securely added to either side of the pendant, and an additional length of chain and a hand crafted "S" clasp completes the design. The entire design was oxidised deeply, and then selectively rubbed back.
