This necklace was so much fun to make. After making earrings in the same design, I decided that I wanted to make the same design as a necklace. I love the combination of the black and gold as well as the proportions of the flower and the hoop together.
It is made in polymer clay - the flower is made using a sizing template and a texture plate to give it the natural effect that you see here. The hoop is made using an inlay technique where the negative space is filled with clay and then scraped and sanded away. It is a time-consuming technique that gives a striking result.
After the pieces are fired and assembled, I then attached them to satin rope and closed it off with a gold clasp and tassel.
Fun and whimsical, yet sophisticated and elegant.
It's part of my new collection titles Notte D'oro which means 'night of gold'
