♥♥♥ About This Necklace ♥♥♥
This piece is definitely the standout of the Xanadu Statement Collection. I designed this necklace to be soft, feminine and easier to wear than some of the other bigger pieces. The inspiration comes from nature and how everything is now just blooming again in the southwest. I didn’t have much of a green thumb to start with and since I travel a lot for the art fairs it’s almost impossible for me to keep a garden in the hot Phoenix summers. I always dreamed that someday I would have a lush, colorful garden with amazing tall crawling vines full of flowers. This necklace is my whimsical and modern take on that imaginary garden in my mind.
There are actually six individually components in this necklace that were soldered together after the initial casting. I played around with the layout of the components a lot but just couldn’t decide on a final look. That is the why the flower component is actually not permanently affixed to the other components. The large centerpiece actually acts as a moveable link so that you can wear the necklace 2 ways (see picture). This piece is plated with an antiqued sterling silver and rhodium finish and would really pop against dark neutral colors.
♥♥♥ Measurements ♥♥♥
- The flower measures just a tad under 2.0 inches
- The entire necklace measures just below 19.0 inches long
- This piece weights approximately 6.0 oz (1.0 lb = 16.0oz).
♥♥♥ How Is It Made ♥♥♥
Each creation in my statement collection is made using a complicated mold cast process. I like to sketch awhile before I start so a lot of these pieces actually got started in the summer. I usually only cast metal pieces in the winter and spring because they are all done in my well ventilated garage and it's like 120 degree in Phoenix from June-Sept so it can get quite unpleasant! Each individual pewter component is casted individually and then polished, soldered or strung together to create the final look. The whole thing is then plated with a very thin layer of my own blend of sterling silver and rhodium (rhodium prevents tarnishing). I use to do the plating by dipping the entire piece in the molten hot silver mixture but that was very messy. Now I just air spray it on for a smooth, uniformed look! All of my pewter is sourced in the US and it's always lead and nickel free.
