I call these three necklaces "elemental" because I tried to achieve something that was roughly textured with uneven, almost ombre color, that was formed directly by the earth, thereby embodying the powers of nature at work.
These organic nature inspired necklaces are each fashioned from hand-wrought copper that has been roughly textured to show metal that looks slightly pitted. They are then wrapped and soldered with sterling silver wire, and hand-painted with various colors and layers of gilders paste to create hints of color visible on the copper metal that create an ombre effect. The gilders paste will not fade or rub off because the metal has been sealed with layers of a special protective non-toxic coating. Necklaces are set with either a white freshwater pearl, garnet or lapis stone.
Elemental Necklaces are curved to approximately 3.25 inches (8.26 cm) in width and are suspended from a textured 17 inch (43.18 cm) sterling silver chain by either hematite stones on the pearl necklace, or garnet or lapis stones on the garnet and lapis necklaces.
These necklaces are made to order, and is usually ready to ship in approximately 3-5 days.
Necklace is shipped in a white cotton-filled box.
