Anne's Own Decoupage Wood and Polymer Clay Beads On GlamTribale Jewelry

Panther necklace $95; pierced earrings $45Anne Enke’s Decoupage & Polymer Clay Beads

I’m pleased as punch to share our first GlamTribale jewelry pieces made in my own loft with decoupage vellum beads and one of a kind polymer clay beads. Out of necessity for higher-end art shows, GlamTribale jewelry now features elements made by myself and our team.

We delivered 30 pieces of new jewelry to Giant Steps Framing & Art Gallery in Rittenhouse Square yesterday. Giant Steps is located at 229 S 20th Street. Each of these pieces can be purchased at Giant Steps until early September. If an item is sold out, we will gladly make another for you, with the understanding that we can’t exactly duplicate any of the polymer clay beads.

GlamTribale has always been about the fusion of cultures and our customers love that twist in our jewelry and gift products. If the curators can’t live with this GlamTribale hybrid — one that continues to source materials from Africa in particular — then I guess I won’t be hanging out with curators of high-end craft and art shows.

Our commitment to helping girls in Kenya by buying them sanitary pads so they stay in school, coupled with our support of Planned Parenthood here in the US mean more to friends of GlamTribale than my making every element on the jewelry.

GlamTribale Wit & Whimsy

I am also moving to incorporate much more wit into many of our pieces. People have told me my entire life that I am a fantastic story teller. After all, I wrote a play produced in my school when I was 12. People absolutely love talking about the Omo Valley people.

In the necklace above, the jungle cat is chasing antique gold-plated birds, hanging on to the word HOPE. A firefly or dragon fly is in pursuit of the panther. Letting my imagination run wild — not a problem EVER for me — I then created decoupage beads using a lovely vellum tissue and panther imagery.

Getting a leopard image bead to match peach tagua and recycled peach beads from Kenya is no easy task. But “no can do” is not a phrase in my creative vocabulary. I’m now on the hunt for Omo Valley inspiration every day, as a tribute to these amazingly beautiful people captured by Hans Sylvester in images that set GlamTribale on a different course. I’m using leather and hemp wherever possible in the jungle-inspired jewelry.

Metal Components Varnished For Anti-Tarnish Longevity

We treat all of our metal components with an eco-friendly, anti-tarnish varnish. All metal changes over time, but we are doing our best to create affordable, long-lasting GlamTribale jewelry pieces.

The jewelry sold at Giant Steps won’t be availabe online until we install the next presentation after Sept 1. If you are interested in buying any of the jewelry pictured or want more details about size, please contact me directly, and we will arrange it. Credit cards are accepted and we can ship internationally. http://www.anneofcarversville.com/contact-anne

I simply can’t believe how far I’ve come in learning to make all the jewelry myself. It’s been a challenging year since we first showed the jewelry end of July in Lancaster. Nothing has happened as quickly as I would like, but we are cruising now.

Gallery Space Desired

Bringing the website up to full speed remains on our ToDo list. We are also looking to partner with like-minded artisans who will share the rent for a gallery space in Philadelphia. Anybody with recommendations or clever ideas, give me a shout out. We would also consider taking space in New York or elsewhere, with the right partners. Love to all. ~ Anne

Woolly Mammoth Tribal Necklace @ Giant Steps Gallery Philly

Justin Burok is our go-to guy at Giant Steps Gallery in Philadelphia. He sent me this photo yesterday, noting that it wasn’t Valentine’s Day red, but he so loves the Themis Woolly Mammoth Tektite Tribal Necklace.

So do we, Justin. 

A Special Necklace for a Special Woman

I’m thinking of our pop-up shop last September 2012 in Mt. Airy. A very athletic, attractive, grey-haired woman came through the door ready to buy. She tried on many necklaces — several more conservative — but she kept returning to this Themis necklace ($160).

“This is the story,” she said, looking at herself in the mirror. ” I want a necklace that will leave my daughter speechless, with her saying ‘Mom, where did you get that necklace!’ I’m tired of being predictable, so I want a necklace that will have people noticing me but also one that doesn’t push me out the window, because it’s just too adventurous. As for my daughter, she will be begging me to borrow the necklace, and I will say ‘no’. She will say where did you get it, and I will say ‘it’s rare, unique and only a very few will be made’.”

With that our new friend bought her Themis necklace truly fit for a queen, while her husband returned later to scoop up several other pieces as presents. 

New Limited Edition GlamTribale Designs

Hers wasn’t numbered and neither is Justin’s Themis necklace at Giant Steps Gallery. Initially I thought that using woolly mammoth beads, made from bones a minimum of 10,000-100,000 years old, from an animal now extinct, was enough distinction for one woman. 

I was wrong.

Understanding today how special GlamTribale Jewelry is to the women who wear it, I’m committing to make no more than five Themis necklaces of this design. To do one — which must then amortize all my design time into a single necklace — seems unreasonable. But I understand clearly that our ladies don’t want to see themselves coming and going, and I think five is a good compromise. 

For more information about the Themis necklace, visit our description page at GlamTribale.
