Last month, Newport beaded jewelry artist Anja Chavez had the honor of “going to the Oscars” via commissions for two of her necklace creations. The commissions came to her from two friends who received tickets from a Hollywood film producer. Both necklaces were “v” shaped, and one featured central black beads accented with gold and silver beads on both the inner and outer edges. The other necklace was primarily coral tones edged with black accents. Teardrop shape crystals in coral with a gold shimmer from Nye Cottage Beads completed the necklace. Chavez is a member of For ArtSake, an artist owned co-op in the heart of Nye Beach, and is an artisan vendor at the Newport Farmers’ Market.
