Octopus Lace Necklace


Artist Statement: Crescent Lace original designs are based on the Japanese style of chain maille weave. Octopus Lace began as a bracelet, so named due to the illusion of an octopus arm winding its way around the bracelet.

Octopus Lace features three sizes of rings in an intricately engineered weave — just the right appearance balanced with the perfect degree of flexibility. The largest rings are 6mm in diameter, and the smallest rings are 3mm.

The necklace features a segment of Octopus Lace — octopus arm — suspended at both ends from silver link chain. The segment of lace is about 3 inches long. With the chain, the necklace is 16 inches long.

Made from sterling silver rings and chain; it closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp.

Look in the shop for the matching Octopus Lace bracelet, pendant and earrings.

The necklace is custom made 16 inches in length, but can be made up to 20 inches. When you purchase this necklace, please let me know the length — either via convo or as a "message to seller” at checkout. If you'd like it longer than 20 inches, this is possible for an additional fee (contact me in advance for details).
