Ethereal, Sterling and Fine Silver, Woven Wire Necklace
Another exploration in wire weaving, this "Ethereal" pendant is made with a framework of Sterling Silver and woven with tiny strands of .999 Fine Silver wire. Instead of my usual lampwork glass, I decided it needed this dazzling, Swarovski cut crystal to really feel light, mystical, and ethereal.
The sterling silver link chain is attached at either corner of the wire work, and is adjustable with a lobster clasp to up to 18" long. Additional length can be added if requested.
The entire piece has been oxidized and buffed to a smooth matte finish to emphasize it's many woven layers.
The wire work itself measures : 1.5" across and 1.5" up and down or 2.5" including the crystal dangle
