The ombre hue blends white into gray created by the skin of the Asian water snake. With brass chain this small necklace was inspired by a pair of earrings the artist saw in Canada. Wanting to play around with oxidizing, creating layers and textures on chain she found the Asian water snake skin scraps through an independent seller on Etsy. The shop sells the skins in sections, as opposed to the whole skin, which works perfectly for the smaller scale jewelry like this.
Palomino Jewelry is the creation of Kathryn Fuller. Hand crafted and artistically created Katie brings new life to old materials. Though she lives in Brooklyn, much of Katie's childhood was spent outdoors and with animals. These experiences are the current of joy that run through her still. Her jewelry is in response to and inspired by the simplicity and perfection of nature.
