What: O Sapphire Pendant
Why: This keepsake piece was custom-designed by Laurie Chapman specially to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Made of hand-hammered 18-karat gold ($275) and sterling silver ($75), the “O” also holds a pink, orange, light blue or green sapphire that dangles from an 18-inch 1.5 mm ball chain.
The inspiration behind the pendant necklace comes from a number of places: Laurie Chapman set out to create a piece that was soothing, feminine and versatile—something that any woman would love to wear with both casual and formal attire. She also responds to circles and the idea of the “circle of life”— something that is life-affirming and represents unity. It also a beautiful shape to work with.
About the Designer: Based in Southern California, Laurie Chapman founded Sweet Tooth Designs more than three years ago after extending her creativity as a graphic designer into the world of jewelry making. Today, as a full-time jewelry designer, Laurie Chapman brings her passion for the accessory to every piece she creates. Her “ingredients” include carefully considered gemstones and oxidized sterling silver. She also draws added inspiration from fashion and the every day to textures, architecture and the art of play.
