Artisan Glass and Garnet Sterling Silver Necklace - My first love ---- artisan beads --- continues!  This glass cabochon, by artist Mikelene Reusse, is most definitely a piece of art! I was reminded of Romeo and Juliet ... "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"... as she has artfully "drawn" that red flower by hand with glass!  I wanted to continue with the floral theme, so I hand stamped an abstract leaf design to the sterling silver back plate. I added a 5mm faceted garnet, and 3 flattened silver granules to the pendant.  Twisted wire around the edges, and as the bail, complete the design.

The necklace measures approximately 1 7/8" round (not including the bail). I have lightly darkened the sterling to bring out the textures, buffed by hand, and tumbled to achieve a beautiful patina.  The necklace hangs from a pretty 18" 1.7 mm diamond cut box chain.

All metals used in this necklace are .925 sterling silver.

This is such a beautiful Statement Necklace meant to be worn for years to come!

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
