Artisan Glass Cabochon Pendant and Handmade Sterling Chain

in: Necklace



Artisan Glass Cabochon Pendant and Handmade Sterling Chain- This stunning, handmade made glass cabochon was made by Mikelene Reusse (Growing Edge Glass). I cannot get enough of her glass - her colors are perfectly coordinated! This particular cabochon features a smoky brown base accented with varying hues of greens, yellows, and pinks. I have roll printed a design on the back plate and bezel-set this stunning glass piece of art in sterling silver.

A commercial chain would not do for the look I was trying to achieve. So, I carved out an afternoon of time to craft a nice chunky chain from heavy, 12 gauge sterling silver. Each alternating large/smaller link is soldered closed and a texture has been applied by hand. The necklace fastens with a simple clasp forged from heavy sterling silver. Handmade chain is a laborious process - and at the same time - Zen-like! Nearly 3 ounces of sterling silver was used in the making of this necklace and chain.

The sterling silver has been darkened, buffed by hand, and tumbled to achieve a beautiful, rustic patina.

Measurements: Overall length: 23 1/2 inches; Total Pendant Drop Length: 49mm (just under 2"); Pendant Width 38mm (approximately 1 1/2")

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