I made this necklace to feature my very favorite constellation of Orion on sumptuous dark cobalt blue reeded silk. Orion the Hunter shows up in the sky from November to February of each year - late fall to winter in the Northern Hemisphere, late spring to summer in the Southern Hemisphere.

The setting is silver tone and about 40mm (1.57") ( plus 15mm (0.59") for the bail) x 30mm (1.18" ) in size. The chain is up to you - see 4th picture for sizing references.

Either:

16 Inch Delicate Chain: (.75 mm) sterling silver-filled, 0.75mm flat cable lobster claw clasp - tarnish resistant.

18 Inch Delicate Chain: (.75 mm) sterling silver-filled, 0.75mm flat cable lobster claw clasp - tarnish resistant.

18 inch Chunky Chain: (457.2 mm) silver plated cable chain necklace with 5x3.5mm rings and lobster clasp.

All are lead and nickel free. (Sterling silver-filled chain is made of a thin outer layer of sterling silver surrounding a copper-alloy core. Chain has an anti-tarnish coating. Contains 10% silver, 1/10 silver filled.)

I created this necklace using the punch needle embroidery technique, which is akin to ancient rug hooking on a smaller scale. The finest hand dyed embroidery floss was used for depth in the design.

Punch needle is somewhat restricted in that it requires the use of only one type of material to create pieces on (weaver's cloth) - until now. Due to a fusing technique I am able to attach the weaver's cloth to any fabric I choose, in this case, a sumptuous, rich, yummy reeded silk. This silk is so stunning it almost glows, making this an heirloom quality piece you will treasure!

FYI:
Some elements may vary slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create this piece. Each one is hand drawn (no pattern) so please allow for subtle differences. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as they are hand dyed.

*Made to Order, please allow 7 days until Ready To Ship!*

This item arrives in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving, even if it's a gift for yourself!
