In a room—empty, small, four walls only,
covered with green cloth—
a beautiful chandelier burns, all fire;
and in each of its flames a sensual fever,
a lascivious urge, glows with heat.

In the small room, radiantly lit
by the chandelier’s hot fire,
no ordinary light breaks out.
Not for timid bodies
the rapture of this heat.

(C.P. Cavafy, 'Chandelier', translated by Edmund Keeley/Philip Sherrard)


Sultry and provocative, this statement necklace was made with a decorative neoclassical chain link, that came from a vintage gold gilt chandelier. It is a heavy piece, and so rare! I only had two of these chain links and so I made two necklaces, the listing is for one.

I particularly love the bright gold color as well as the palmette decorative motif that you can see in the middle of each side of the link. It is a symmetrical piece, looks gorgeous on, very special and glamorous, and to paraphrase Cavafy, 'not for timid wearers'...

The chain is black over brass, and I have wire wrapped a large Czech glass bead. The closure is also wire wrapped, and there is no clasp. You can wear this over your head. Practical!

Chain length: 80cm (31 inches)
Chandelier link: 7.5cm (3 inches)
Black glass bead: 12mm

The finished piece falls right above your navel.
