Story
I often get inspiration from Japanese old metal works.
This design comes from the decoration of an old kettle.
I re-created it as a necklace with my own sense.
As I wrote above the gold patterns are fine gold foils.
I cut them one by one by hand and fixed them on the sterling with heat and pressure.
It was a tough work.
Another technical feature is polished patina of sterling.
It makes sterling look like another new black metal.
