Providence, RI. USA
I am a professional chef who has adapted her skills to metal work. It came as a surprise that many of the same talents I apply to cooking also apply to jewelry making-not only the manual skills, but also appreciation for textures, colors, composition, fire and yes, taste!
I found my happiness in the technique of Russian filigree, which I love for it's grace and fluidity. Not only do I love the zen of the technique, but when I learned more about the different cultures that historically produce filigree (Greek, Russian, Jewish), I realized it was culturally significant for me as well as my heritage is a mix of these groups.
Materials: Sterling Silver, Fine Silver
Dimensions: 2.25 x 1 inch
This is a one of a kind Russian silver filigree pendant necklace, measuring 17". It's focal point is a three dimensional pendant, which is about 2.25 inches across and almost an inch at it's widest point.
It is coiled around a hand made viking knit chain, finished off with a handmade clasp.
