Sea nymph fragment necklace

Sea nymph fragment necklace


I have sea foam in my veins, 
for I understand
the language of waves.

-Le Testament d’Orphee

edition: limited edition of 100
made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The pendant measures 1.5 inches wide and is 1/2 of an inch high, not including the tiny bails for the chain. It is 1/8 of an inch thick and hangs on an 18 inch sterling chain.
process: The enameling process for making this necklace is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
