Description

This fabulous piece was inspired by the song "In The Forest" by Van Morrison -- with a Harry Potter twist to it.

"By the sacred grove, where the waters flow,
We will come and go, in the forest.

In the summer rain, we will meet again,
We will learn the code of the ancient ones,
In the forest."

-- "In The Forest", Van Morrison

This necklace was created as part of a fannish festival celebrating the characters Severus Snape (SS) and Hermione Granger (HG) from the Harry Potter books. See https://sshg-giftfest.livejournal.com/80545.html for the festival entry.

Two twisted cords hanging with leaf charms, meet in the middle at a Celtic Triquetra (threefold knot) pendant. The cord on the left is brown faux suede twisted with steel threads, silver-grey and green viscose threads. It is hung with silver metal leaves and green glass leaves. This represents both Slytherin (Severus Snape) and the seasons of Winter (silver) and Spring (green). The cord on the right is brown faux suede twisted with gold metallic threads and red-copper viscose threads. It is hung with gold metal leaves and red glass leaves. This represents both Gryffindor (Hermione Granger) and the seasons of Summer (gold) and Autumn (red). Combined, they represent the turn of the seasons, the forest itself, and, more deeply, unity in diversity. The seasons, so different from each other, make up the whole of the year, making it complete. Likewise, both Slytherin and Gryffindor are so different from each other, yet each contributes to the whole which would not be complete without them. The Triquetra pendant in the middle is a symbol of either the Threefold Goddess or the Holy Trinity (depending what tradition you follow). In either case, it is a sacred symbol, which joins the two sides. This indicates that they have come together because of something greater which unites them: the sacred divine which makes us look outside ourselves.

The necklace is adjustable. The shortest length is 60cm. The longest length is 80cm.
The Celtic knot pendant is made of copper wire. It was custom-made for this piece by WhoozQueen at https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/WhoozQueen

FAQs

Items made of copper, bronze, or silver will tarnish unless given a protective coating. Some of the items I have made of these materials I have protected with Renaissance Wax or with clear enamel -- check the individual listing. However, most items with these materials have not been coated, because coatings tend to wear off unevenly and look unsightly.

To remove tarnish: if the item is pure chainmaille, put in a container, cover with boiling water and add a tablespoon of vinegar, or a teaspoon of citric acid. Let this steep for five minutes, and then rinse THOROUGHLY. If the item includes semi-precious stones, it can't be cleaned in acid unless you remove the stones first, or the stones will be ruined.
Items made of stainless steel, coloured/enamelled copper, or aluminium will not tarnish. To clean them, put in a container with hot water and a little dish-washing detergent, and shake; then rinse. This can also be done as a general cleaning method for other metals, but it will not remove tarnish.
Jewellery made with textiles should usually not need cleaning. If they do, try a gentle hand-wash in cold water, to ensure that the textile does not shrink.
Lay the item flat to dry. Do not tumble-dry.
Note that some items made of silk may change colour if you wash them, so be careful.
The Wearable Art is just that: art. It costs more because it takes more work and more skill to create. Each piece of wearable art begins with a meaning I am trying to convey. To distill the essence of that meaning into a piece of jewellery takes much thought, and sometimes much experimentation, since the first attempt to construct what I envisage may not always work. When that happens, I have to try again. This may entail using different techniques or different materials, or even going back to the drawing-board and figuring out a completely different approach.

My other works can also have meaning, but with them, the title and its meaning comes after I have created the work, not before.
I would love to create wearable art for you, based on the things you like, on a theme, on a prompt, things that mean something to you. This will not be a tweak of an existing design, this will be a work of art. However, to ensure that you are serious about this, and accounting for the large amount of time needed to negotiate a design, I require a $100 deposit before I start designing. The balance will depend on what design we agree upon; the materials and time taken can vary hugely, and that will affect the costs. The minimum cost will always be $100, which is covered by the deposit, but most designs will cost more than that.

If you are interested, start a conversation with me.
