Sterling Silver

The little sprite on this fantasy jewelry necklace has someplace to go, off to visit a friend, maybe she has some mischief planned or some magic to weave. The collection was developed from the inspiration of wandering into an ancient oak grove forgotten by time, and catching the briefest glimpse of faeries among the tree branches before they disappeared. One day when walking through the woods my thoughts carried me to that mystical place and that is how this collection of wood nymphs was conceived.

I started by collecting oak twigs, the more gnarled the better, and waxing small sections of them together to form interesting arrangements. The shapes inspired the faerie poses; crouching, standing, climbing, dancing, sitting or running. Then I sculpted the faeries three dimensionally out of wax; being mindful of proportion, musculature as well as minute detail. When the sculpture was completed I added them to the oak twigs and they were cast together in solid sterling silver. To achieve the finish each piece has been given two different layers of patina, the branches are left mostly dark with a satin luster over top to induce the feeling of old wood, while the faerie is given a higher polish, but still retains antiquing in the recessed areas to showcase the form and detail of the work. Included in the collection are several necklaces that have attached sections of cast twig, a pendant, ring, bracelet and earrings.

The Climbing Faerie necklace is cast in solid sterling silver and consists of central section where the wood nymph plays, linked together with cast sections of a variety of twigs, even the toggle clasp is constructed of cast twigs.

The central section of the necklace measures 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall at it's widest and tallest points of branches. The necklace is available in 3 lengths 16 1/2, 19 and 20 inches long, the unusual lengths are dictated by the sections of twigs that I have to work with. The shorter length is shown on the model. Let me know which length is right for you, special order lengths are available by request.
