Abstract Sterling Silver and Rhodonite Necklace
This sterling silver pendant has an organic and asymmetrical look, inspired by tangled roots and vines. Sculpted first in jewelers’ wax, the piece is cast in molten metal using lost wax casting. This process means each cast piece is one-of-a-kind and cannot be repeated.
After casting, the silver is treated with a patina to give it an antiqued look, which brings out the layers of the sculpted silver. Then, a round (1/4″) rhodonite stone is attached for color contrast and movement; and a matching sterling silver chain and hand-forged hook clasp is added.
- Dimensions of pendant: approximately 5/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ long
- Length of chain: 18″
All of my work is handmade, using recycled materials whenever possible, and incorporating/re-using gemstones and vintage pieces.
