Neck­piece cap­tures spirit of courage

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

SCAR­BOR­OUGH jew­ellery de­signer Keiko Uno’s be­spoke state­ment neck­piece “Spirit of the Sea” will go un­der the ham­mer at this year’s Breast Cancer Care WA (BCCWA) Long Ta­ble Lunch.

Cap­tur­ing the en­ergy and free­dom of the sea, the piece fea­tures gen­er­ous waves of pre­cious metal, pearls, Aus­tralian opals and gem­stones.

Uno said she do­nated the piece to thank the or­gan­i­sa­tion for its vi­tal ser­vices.

“And to re­mem­ber those who have lost the bat­tle, and to cel­e­brate those who have coura­geously beaten breast cancer,” she said.

The jew­eller’s pieces have also been worn by BCCWA founder and pa­tron Ros Wor­thing­ton and world surfing cham­pi­ons Layne Beach­ley and Steph Gil­more.
