I love working with different shapes and textures to create unique designs that are unusual yet appealing. In this design, I am using copper-plated and silver-plated metals and different textures. Always one to fight convention, I have used copper-plated hammered round link on one side and copper-plated medium oval link and small square link chain for the other and elements of both in the stylized tassel treatment on the large polished silver-plated irregular round pendant. This necklace is versatile enough to be worn with casual outfits or for dinner out with friends. 36″ plus extenders. Pendant drop plus tassles – 4″. A must have as an accessory that will always be stylish. Find a special gift for a loved one or a beautiful piece that complements your personal style with Jewelry by Fran Green.

About the designer
I have always loved fashion and jewelry. After retiring in 2004 from a successful career in the Canadian federal government, I switched gears from a world constrained by rules, crises and incredible stress to one of freedom, creativity and joy.
Working with quality materials, I am inspired by the rawness of semi-precious stone nuggets and imperfectly shaped pearls. Equally inspiring are beautifully faceted and flawless semi-precious stones and crystal or near flawless stick and coin pearls. I am in a different, altered state of euphoria in a bead shop or at a gem show. When I discover new stones with amazing colour or shape, I imagine the possibilities and get excited about the prospect of creating.
Since I began creating jewelry, my design aesthetic has definitely evolved from the safe – symmetrical to asymmetrical designs, with an unexpected element. I draw inspiration from the size, colour, shape and texture, from nature, from my heart. My designs cover a broad spectrum from one of a kind statement pieces using semi-precious stones and pearls to limited edition quality silver-plated chains in large scale links and shapes. Like my personality, my jewelry is multi-dimensional.
A few years ago, after successful private shows, the world of retail beckoned. At this time in my life, I am a firm believer in the “going big or going home” philosophy and approached the top women’s boutique chain in Ottawa – Shepherd’s Fashions and have been there since 2013 – still going strong. Grateful that my design aesthetic resonates with women of all ages and I am very fortunate to have a fabulous mentor and a very strong following beyond Ottawa and in the United States. My jewelry now available in select boutiques in Ontario and Sarasota, Florida with plans to expand.
I am very grateful for my creativity and my second career at this time of my life. My passion for jewelry design is a gift that enables me to give back, donating jewelry to numerous fundraisers each year. I love the wonderful women I meet, their reactions to my pieces and how they feel – priceless. As a jewelry designer for almost 14 years, having created hundreds of designs, I still get inspired. Not stopping any time soon. Passion and creativity have no age limit.
