The St. Charles Avenue design is from 1880 featuring the Nine Muses Streets in New Orleans where I have created art and jewelry for ten years.

It is silhouettes of the houses, showing the architectural vernacular - our beautiful side galleries or curved porches, which allowed for the river breezes to flow.

  • Material - Sterling Silver and pearls
  • Dimensions - approximately 2.25 x 1.5 inches (with adjustable chain)
  • Other items in the collection are showcased in the later photographs.

 

A little brief history:

This section of the Lower Garden District was planned by Barthelemy Lafon who intended it to be a sophisticated area lined with trees, markets and parks.


Being a lover of the classics, he named the streets after the nine muses of Greek Mythology: Calliope, Clio, Erato, Thalia, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Euterpe, Polymnia, and Urania
