La Martorana

In the small church of La Martorana, curated by Greek officials for a Norman King, you are astounded. The mosaics seem to reflect the patchwork of cultures that is Sicily. I sat one afternoon after lunch in the cool of La Martorana, and wondered how to tell the story of these mosaics in a jewel.

My pencil drawings of the intricate, geometric patterns had a simplicity that I liked instantly and consequently, the La Martorana earrings and necklace pendant are made in only white and yellow gold.
