Colorful statement necklace garnets, dichroic glass, vintage inspired
This bold, vintage inspired statement necklace features a sparkling dichroic glass cabochon and four garnet cabochons.
I created the luminous pink toned background by using a veneer made with liquid polymer clay, metal leaf, ink, and glitter. The veneer was applied to a polymer clay base.
The dichroic cabochon glistens with pink, gold, and blue tones. There are four 5mm Almandine garnet cabochons, adding to the vintage, luxurious feel of this piece. I created a hand formed polymer bezel setting for the stones. The bezel surface and embellishments were antiqued with soft bronze tones.
The area around the stones was coated with jeweler's grade resin for a durable, glass like finish. The back is lightly textured and marked with my initials. The pendant measures about 2" x 2". It is lightweight.
I used a trendy gunmetal cable chain accented with brass findings. The chain is finsihed with a gunmetal lobster clasp and three inch chain extender. It is 18" long, but I can easily adjust if you would like it longer or shorter.
This unique and regal looking statement necklace is a memorable piece of jewelery!
