Like a lone sentinel on a rocky ridge, with only the crescent moon for a companion, this sterling saw pierced tree necklace evokes a wintry, waiting stillness....
The necklace starts with a hand fabricated tab cut from sterling sheet. The tree & crescent design are hand drawn, then pierced & hand sawn. A bit of hammer texture at the bottom gives a rocky look & the tab's edges are "distressed". Finally, the tab is oxidized, steel wool-polished & hung on a handmade, oxidized sterling toggle clasp.
The necklace is created with oxidized sterling chain spaced by sterling wire wrapped links holding an asymmetrical mix of U.S. mined turquoise (December birthstone!) squared beads....and a single, deep blue lapis bead.
This elegant, boho-turquoise necklace measures 18" (45.72 cm) in total length, including the front facing toggle clasp. The focal piece is 1.25" (3.17 cm) x 5/8" (1.57 cm).
