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.

The necklace measures about 20″ long with an additional 2.5″ extension chain to allow for adjusting.
