Mixed Media Necklace Sterling Silver, Vintage Buttons, Citrine, Pearls, Fabric- Reliquary No.5

$187.50 $250.00

Reliquary Necklace No. 5 features a wedge shaped open locket I created out of sterling silver. I filled the open locket with a chunk of sea shell, vintage shell buttons, mica layered over a snppet of a vintage check and words found in a very old book. I filled the locket with a clear resin. A delicate rose balances out the side of the locket.

On the reverse of the locket, I've stamped the word 'cherish'.

The slightly asymmetrical necklace is filled with beautiful gemstones, amber, citrine, freshwater pearls in gold and a soft buttery cream color.
Wrapped torn fabrics in a soft amber color are incorporated for an appealing juxtaposition to the 'hardness' of the metal and stones.

O Gentle Muses!

She collected the worlds debris. Things that seemed of no value to the rest were of unmeasurable value to her...she saw the items as evidence of lives lived and the touch of humans.

All metal used is sterling silver, I've oxidized it for richness and brushed back for depth.

Necklace length (from clasp to center of necklace) 22". Drop from center of necklace to the bottom of the open locket is an additional 2 1/2". Wedge is 1 1/4" wide, 1 1/2" in length.

Completely one of a kind, part of my ongoing exploration into reliquaries, lockets, the allure of disparate elements and my questioning of what is 'precious'...
