My necklaces are not for the faint hearted! They are designed for the modern woman - self-confident, bold, sassy, daring - an innovator who is not afraid to be noticed, because when you wear a Constanza original, people will notice you. They will come up to you and admire your necklace, because it is a beautiful and bold statement, like you! So be prepared and enjoy the attention!
This photo was taken at an outdoor market in Guilin, China, full of Chinese arts and crafts, such as these masks. Guilin is famous for the tall, slim karsts that surround the area, but I remember it primarily for the clever merchants who out-witted me in every bargain I foolishly negotiated!
I spent hours snooping around dark and cluttered jewelry stores hunting for old sterling silver beads. I found them hidden in back rooms and dusty old drawers, tarnished - replaced in the showcases by the shiny new, prized beads.
