The last ten weeks of the artist Van Gogh's life were spent at Auvers-sur-Oise. He died there from an infected (generally accepted to be self-inflicted) gunshot wound to the abdomen. During his brief stay at the Auberge Ravoux (pictured) he finished close to 75 paintings.
This homage is a colorful necklace of semi-precious stones with glass and carved resin beads. The wheat field, in greens and golds holds three drops of blood. Above that a strand of blues, greys and white represent the skies he painted.
The one of a kind statement necklace hangs a little less than 24"(60cm) long at the longest strand. It closes with hammered copper cones and a Bali style hook clasp. The necklace will be shipped USPS with insurance and domestic tracking included in the shipping price. I do use signature confirmation for shipments over $100. International buyers not mentioned below please convo for shipping options.
