Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Angel Inspired Necklace


Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Angel Inspired Necklace - I always wonder what inspires a design. Though not an architect, my former background of working with architects sparked my interest in designs of all kinds. Recently, I literally awoke from a dream in the middle of the night in which I was approached by an Angel. I do not normally remember my dreams, but this one was so powerful. So, the next day, I could not shake the intensity of this dream, so I headed to my studio with "Angels among us" on my mind.

With absolutely no idea of what I was going to create, I pulled this beautiful Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from my cabinet and just got to work.  I roll printed a pretty pattern on the sterling silver back plate, attached three large fine silver spheres to her "skirt", and added a nice, thick silver bail.  

The sterling silver has been slightly darkened with patina, hand buffed, and tumbled to achieve incredible strength and shine.The pendant measures just over 2" in length and 1" in width at its widest point.  The Sleeping Beauty Turquoise cabochon measures 17 mm x 10 mm.

The pendant hangs from a 4mm wide woven leather cord measuring 20" in length and closes securely with a sterling silver lobster style clasp.  

All metals used in this pendant are Fine Silver or Sterling Silver.

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.
