Sterling Silver Mixed Metal Garden Necklace
This mixed metal necklace features a colorful floral section from a honey tin sandwiched between two sterling silver teardrop shapes, both etched with my original design and riveted into place. The colorful floral motif peaks through a circular window in the top silver teardrop. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The pendant measures 1-1/4" x 7/8" and hangs from an 18" oxidized sterling silver chain.
This piece was created for the 2019 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 in 2018.
