Sterling Silver and Recycled Honey Tin Necklace
This hand fabricated necklace features a small colorful floral section cut from a honey tin, rescued from the recycling bin, and hand formed into a dome. It has been bezel set in the center of a hand cut diamond-shaped pendant made from recycled sterling silver. The sterling silver pendant features my original hand drawn seed pods design etched on the backside. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The pendant measures 3/4" x 3/4" and hangs from a sterling silver chain. The chain is available in either an oxidized (darkened) finish or bright silver finish. The oxidized silver chain is pictured.
This piece was created for the Deja Vu Art and Fine Craft Show in celebration of America Recycles Day. My work won Best of Show at this annual event in 2018.
