Green Amber Silver Shell Necklace
This necklace is totally unique and one of the very first project pieces I made whilst training. I was inspired by a segmented sea shell and the green amber cabochons are placed where the void in the original cut away shell was. When I made this I didn’t know anything about green amber, but I was struck by the soft green hue and flecks of gold and black in them, feeling that they were perfect to represent the sea and seaweed. The 3 sections of the pendant are hanging on interwoven ribbons and a string of tiny glass beads which I encased in folded cones of silver before finishing with a handmade silver scroll hook for a special finishing touch.
This piece was exhibited at the Contemporary Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey in the Adult and Community Learning marquee back in 2010.
As this was a very special piece for me, I didn’t intend to sell it originally but it has never been worn which seems a shame as it really is a very beautiful piece of jewellery. It is now available for sale on my Online Shop in the Necklaces category. Why not take a look?
