This 18k (solid) Gold Artisan necklace is totally awesome! I simply could not capture the beauty and the shine of it in the photos. This necklace will make for an incredible gift for your loved one!!, and would easily retail for well over $1800 in a jewelry store.
I was inspired by a recent museum visit where I saw high carat gold jewelry handcrafted by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. I fell in love with the jewelry and wanted to capture the handcrafted look in that rich yellow color, thus I used 18k gold discs, (yes, they are 100% real gold, not plated or filled).
Details: 1) (12) 18k yellow gold 5x15mm oblong discs, hand hammered and polished 2) 14k yellow gold cable chain - 16", 17" or 18" in length, (the length on the model is 18") - leave a message when you check out, otherwise I will ship 18". 3) 14k yellow gold spring clasp 4) Theresa Mink signature tag
Technique: Once I flattened and hammered the ovals I drilled a hole on each end. With professional tools I brought the hammered ovals back up to a high polish. I then connected them all together with tiny 14k gold jump rings. Then I connected 14k gold cable chain to each end for a total length of 18".
The last photo is of the matching earrings available for sale in my shop. This necklace can be customized in many ways, just ask. So can the earrings.
