Amalfi Necklace

Artist Statement: The necklace is made entirely from Sterling Silver which I have blackened (oxidized) and polished myself.

The central circular swirl feature is forged from solid Sterling Silver which is handcoiled with more silver. Around the outer swirl is a parade of tiny faceted Iolite rondelles and the inner swirl is a fabulous array of beautiful blue gemstones in the form of Grey Mystic Quartz, Blue Flash Labradorite, London Blue Topaz, Swiss Topaz, Tanzanite, Blue Zircon and Kyanite.

Hanging from the central feature is an incredible and stunning 45 carat briolette of perfect Rock Crystal - this gemstone is truly breathtaking and against the oxidized silver and bright blues of the gems looks nothing short of spellbinding!

The long chain, from which this pendant hangs, is also entirely handcrafted by me from sterling silver and also more faceted globes of grey Mystic Quartz.
