Bronze Lotus Necklace

Happy Friday ....still from India!! Obviously this much time away in wonderfully culturally rich locales like India, Cambodia & Thailand inspires my take on design and informs my creative brain. I get to work with amazing materials ...silks, beautiful cottons, and often the methods & materials of my textiles inform my jewelry. Such is the case with this week’s Friday Feature. Crafted from a fabric block, this bronze lotus is an example of how my work with textiles spills over into my jewelry line. Each little crevice, line, and detail of this Bronze Lotus Flower has been hand filed & hand finished. I thought it appropriate to include it on 42” vintage silk sari ribbon ...along with a blue pearl ...both of which offer additional versatility. This would be equally beautiful on leather or a gemstone chain. Be creative! Hope you guys Enjoy!!

Handcrafted, signed Bronze Lotus Flower, paired with a freshwater blue pearl, on vintage Silk Sari ribbon ...all set in 14k gold vermeil.
