Sterling Silver and Coffee Stir Stick Teardrop Necklace No. 1
This hand fabricated necklace features portions of plastic coffee stir sticks from a popular coffee chain, rescued from becoming waste, and sandwiched between two riveted sterling silver teardrops. The top teardrop has been etched with my hand drawn pattern. The stir sticks have been riveted and peak through a round opening in the top teardrop. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The pendant measures 1-1/4" x 7/8" and hangs from an oxidized sterling silver chain.
This necklace makes a fun gift for your favorite coffee lover.
This piece was created for the 2018 Deja Vu Art and Fine Craft Show in celebration of America Recycles Day. The show featured 60 professional artists creating work made from recycled or repurposed materials. My work won Best of Show at this event.
