Silver Poppy Necklace
A silver poppy flower combined with peridot beads. A simple sort of necklace for everyday wear.
Moth - A Midsummer Nights Dream inspired Necklace
The centerpiece for this necklace is a flea market found treasure, which seemed predestined to depict Moth. I am not sure what material it is, but I think silver is a fair guess. I picked up several pieces from one dealer that looked like they came from a goldsmith's workshop, including silver solder; so I think I am guessing on the safe side. Someone put a lot of work into sawing out this intricate pattern! I have filled the spaces with amethyst coloured resin and just a bit of sparkle, to create the look of plique-à-jour enamel, which was very popular during the Art Nouveau period.
Moth Necklace Detail
I wire wrapped some leaflike antenna to the top, similar in shape to the antennae of moths and completed it with amethyst beads and vintage freshwater pearls, including an amethyst and pearl dangle.
