Birds of a Feather Necklace by Sandra Hartwieg
Sterling Silver Necklace from the Birds of a Feather Collection.
Contrasting geometric forms with natural patterns, this necklace is embossed with a feather found on a country walk. It is imprinted into the silver preserving its unique pattern. A 24 carat gold thorn is then fused into the metal adding another layer of embellishment. Pattern and texture will vary from the picture shown as each piece is individually embossed and embellished. Your necklace will be unique!
Chain length 45cm (18in). Adjustable to 40cm (16in). Sits below the collarbone. Approx 15mm in diameter.
Handmade in Kilkenny, Ireland.
