Hardware

Once in a while a maker may make something and then think! "F@#K! I made that!! I really made THAT". It is then a race to grab the gossamer threads of inspiration and then run with it.

This very thing happened to me today. I don't mean to sound cocky (pardon me if I do) but I seriously love my Hardware necklace. 








✝The Story:
Shiny hard objects that jostle against each other in an artery of brutal beauty. A frenzy of things that don't normally sit beside each other. Forget guts for garters...wear it as a necklace instead!

✝The Composition:
I worked in a frenzy to combine Swarovski crystal pearls, reclaimed vintage crystal beads taken from a broken chandelier, steel hex nuts from the hardware shop and broken silver plated and gunmetal chains with their bolt rings still attached. The necklace is finished with a gunmetal heart clasp and a chunky extension chain with a tiny rhodium plated padlock dangle.

✝Size:
The necklace measures about 20" long with an additional 2.5" extension chain to allow for adjusting.

★ Only two of these will ever be made and one is mine ★

  3. So beautiful!

    You are truly and artist, if I found something like this in my jewelry box, I would get mad and not see the beauty in it...

  4. I like the contrast of angular metal versus roundness of the pearls...Very unusual and striking...
