Gifty Picks - Day 14 - Shell Codex Necklace by Marian Crane

Today's holiday Gifty Pick is a book that is also jewelry. This gorgeous work by Marian Crane features shell beads sewn onto leather with wooden covers that cinch up on linen thread to function as a necklace. Marian tells us this work is, "meant to evoke ancient prayer books and counting symbols. The shapes and colors of the book when closed refer back to water-worn rocks and driftwood in the American West."

Not only is this piece today's Gifty Pick but it is also discounted if purchased by Monday at noon—as are all of Marian Crane's other unique works that we carry in inventory. Every now and then an artist needs a boost and we are happy to oblige. All of Marian's work will be are marked down on the web site to wholesale cost, with 100% of the proceeds going to this very talented artist.

Enjoy,

Laura
