From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
She stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild.
Inspired by the dark lyrics of Nick Cave, the Eliza Day necklace features a stunning gem-studded centrepiece, which falls from a hammered tendril of carefully shaped sterling wire. Comprising of delicious watermelon tourmaline rondelles, and teensy fluorite rondelles, these gemstones lead to a wirewrapped tourmaline and opal component - the white of the opal slightly tinged with lemon...almost tranluscent it's so pale. To either side of the central focal, individual tourmalines lead to a textured chain, which terminates in more tourmaline and a handforged clasp. The entire design was oxidised heavily, and selectively rubbed back to reveal the gorgeous textures of this special piece.
This measures 43 1/2cm or 17 1/4" approximately, while the central component drops a further 7.7cm or 3" (from the tip of the hammered tendril, to the base of the opal briolette).
All metal is sterling silver.
