♥♥♥ About This Necklace ♥♥♥
This inspiration behind this necklace is that there are many invisible threads that connects us all. In the most unexpected ways, everything is woven into our lives to create a most beautiful tapestry.
The entire triangular focal pendent was made with one kind of twisted wire. I manipulated and soldered together the components before they cooled to get the organic woven look. This necklace was plated with a silver and rhodium mixture with a very slight patina for that antiqued silver look. Each individual piece was hand stressed and plated so please expect slight variations from the photos.
♥♥♥ Measurements ♥♥♥
- The triangle portion measures 4.0in x 2.75in at the widest points
- The entire necklace measures 18.0in long with a 3.0in extender
- This piece weights approximately 1.6oz (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.
