Taking influence from the popular art deco style of the 1920, this timeless mixed silver and black pendant adds interest and excitement to any outfit, without overpowering the overall look. With strong lines and a unique 3D design, this pendant celebrates a time when fashion was simpler, and the women seemed to be effortlessly elegant.
The black enamel provides a show-stopping frame for the handwoven silver metal fabric embedded behind the glass. The small balls of glass on top give the effect of a precious stone but with a much more sustainable and budget-friendly finish. This pendant can easily take you from the office to the club, helping to boost your workwear and complement your party clothes.
• Size: Pendant measures (from the top of the bail) 1 1/2 inches long and 7/8 of an inch wide.
• Weight: This pendant is also lightweight and comfortable for all day wear, weighing in at .18 ounces - Just a little more than the weight of a nickel (.17 oz).
• Silver: Argentium Sterling Silver - this is the low tarnish sterling silver alloy made from 100% recycled silver. Traditional sterling silver is .925% silver, but Argentium sterling silver is .935%. That little bit of extra pure silver gives Argentium a brighter, whiter color making it look more like platinum.
• Glass:Pieces of clear glass with black enamel are embedded on top of the woven metal.
• Chain: Pendant comes with either an 18 or 20 inch, 2.2 mm drawn flat cable (paperclip style) chain in traditional .925 sterling silver.
• Packaging: Items are packaged with an anti-tarnish tab in a recycled paper gift box with anti-tarnish filler, which makes for easy gifting and storage.
I have pioneered a new technique which creates the woven metal under glass effect. Using a medieval finger weaving technique, I weave strips from thin metal wire. I then take that woven metal fabric and embed it behind glass. The different shapes of glass either magnify or distort the underlying weave creating many interesting visual effects. In order to take these visual effects even further, I then fuse layers of glass in my kiln and put the woven metal fabric behind that.
But my favorite part is how the bends and the twists of the woven metal fabric interact with the light that is focused by the glass. The intense sparkly nature of these pieces rivals the sparkle in a well cut diamond!
Here is a brief video of me weaving the woven metal fabric:
