Sterling Silver and Recycled Honey Tin Necklace No. 2
This hand fabricated necklace features a colorful floral section 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 back side of the pendant has been etched with my original hand drawn design. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The pendant measures 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and hangs from an 18" oxidized sterling silver chain.
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.
