Statement flower necklace in bronze with lab ruby and rhodolite garnets, metal clay, collar necklace,unique jewelry

Item Description

This gemstone and bronze flower necklace makes a beautiful statement in gold bronze metal clay, rhodolite garnets and a stunning faceted lab ruby.  Delicate, stylized flowers mix effortlessly with a few hard edges, as if to say, "I'm tougher than I look."   

Each flower was hand sculpted in bronze metal clay and textured with a subtle web pattern.  I used a 6mm lab ruby and two 3mm natural rhodolite garnets to compliment the luminous and rich bronze tone of the metal.  The stones are securely prong set.  

This piece was created using Goldie Bronze metal clay.  This unique artisan clay is composed of tiny bronze particles suspended in organic binder material.  When fired in a kiln, the binder burns away, leaving behind  sintered, durable bronze metal in an elegant gold tone. Once the piece was fired, it was polished by hand.  The raised areas were hand burnished to highlight the texture of the metal.  

The flower pendant is 4 3/4" long and has a curved form which sits beautifully just below the collar bone.  I used a vintage inspired brass chain that adjusts from 16 inches to 19 inches for a perfect fit.  It is finished with a brass lobster clasp and bead dangle. Metal has been treated to prevent tarnishing.  To clean, use a water dampened cloth and dry gently dry- do not use chemicals to clean.
