remember Kate? you might think I'm making her up at this point- as if anyone could be that cool. so Kate came to me with an unusual request. her sister recently finished nursing school- and at the same time finished cancer treatment. so she requested that I design a necklace around her chemotherapy port. and this is what I came up with. I decided to go beyond the mixed chain thing I've been doing and accent the port with special treasures like coffee seeds and a sparkling piece of ruby. In this way I thought of the port as a talisman- something that had magical powers and had brought her sister good health and fortune.
