Cataloging Rita's One-of-a-Kind Original Design Necklaces
Rita was a pioneer in the necklace design and bead world, and was especially known for her original design asymmetrical and multi-strand necklaces using antique and ancient beads and unusual pendants.
Recently, our extended family of Rita's daughters, grandchildren, nieces and grand nieces, inherited the gift of a selection of Rita's designs from our aunt, who had acquired many of Rita's necklaces over the years.
In an effort to document and catalog some of these old designs, I enlisted the assistance of our friend, writer, editor and bead expert Robert Liu for some photography help.
Then, I also had the opportunity and good fortune to photograph a large group of my sister's collection of our mother's necklaces.
I am delighted to be able to showcase some of them here in our NEW blog (circa 2019/2020) and also I will update as many photos as possible in our Necklace Gallery link in the lower menu of the website home page.
If you have a Rita Okrent original design necklace whose photo and story you would like to share, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Etsy shop at RitaOkrentCollection and send me a photo of the necklace that I can add to our website. Thank you for your assistance in this project.
