An absolutely magnificent OOAK solid sterling silver and stone necklace is offered. Each of these wonderful components in the piece has been hand made...intricate beads from Bali...heavy oxidized organic artisan made chain with a beautiful distressed patina...hand made jump rings that look like bits of twigs...a big hand patinated lobster claw clasp. This wonderful necklace is asymmetrical...the piece clasps at the front. There is a sweet dove in flight with a heart on its wing, right over yours. There is a tiny additional heart hidden in the rings. The stones are faceted champagne citrine...faceted mandarin orange chalcedony...a Tibetan prayer bead(etched agate). Between each of these are precious faceted solid sterling separators. The absolute crowning glory is the Anne Choi handmade sterling bead. Anne is a smith living in the Atlanta area. She only makes a few of each bead so these are considered VERY LIMITED editions! Her catalog sells out almost in days. On this bead it is written: "The artist is nothing without the gift, and the gift is nothing without work." Author: Emile Zola (This was the last bead in the repertoire.)
I know this belongs to an artist or someone whose artist is begging for release. It is beautiful. There will NEVER be another like this one.
Necklace measures 22" long. The Choi bead is 20 mm long and 15 mm in diameter. The dove is 20 mm x 15 mm. The links in the chain are 9 mm x 3 mm. The chain comprises 14 3/4". The citrine is 11 mm x 9 mm. The weight for the whole is 2.0 ounces. Simply superb.
