Urban Primitive ... at the crossroads of the truly ancient and the ultra modern lives the urban primitive.

This is such an elegant piece, the Epic Slate and Bronze Discs Necklace. It absolutely embodies everything I want to convey with my Urban Primitive series ... the perfect combination of raw, unpolished elements with high-tech materials, tribal inspiration with contemporary design.

The Epic Slate and Bronze Discs Necklace begins with raw bronze discs, formed from BronzeClay - hand pinched and nudged, holes smeared, my fingerprints visible in each piece. This is the bronze straight out of the kiln, mottled and splotched. No doubt a patina will evolve through time - your own personal patina.

The raw bronze discs are combined with a trio of deliciously smooth and flat slate pebbles, hand picked from the river's edge and drilled to slide alongside the bronze discs. A dramatic 19x21mm drum shaped Basha Bead sits next to the slate pebbles and is topped by a delicious chunk of Chinese turquoise.

At the back of the neck, for comfort and a distinctive touch, I've rolled a length of supple chocolate brown leather around the linen cord, then lashed the leather with waxed linen, leaving a loop of cord to receive the bronze disc closure. Dangling from the loop, a slice of hand-cut and dyed ochre silk is inscribed with a blessing, L I G A - love, infinite grace, abundance, and lashed to the cord with waxed linen, a KVK tag ends the cord.

The Urban Primitive Epic Slate and Bronze Disc Necklace is 27" long; the leather wrap is just under 11"; the largest slate pebble is 28mm x 19mm.

Tribal, contemporary, boho chic, the Urban Primitive Eloquent Muse Necklace will arrive wrapped in muslin and tucked into an eco-friendly pillow box cushioned with paper excelsior, scented with rose petals all tied up with recycled sari silk ribbon.

Wrapped and ready as an exceptional gift for yourself or an unexpected gift for someone special. And as always ... beautifully crafted, spirited, jewelry for your soul.

love, infinite grace, abundance
