Oil Spot. An abstract necklace with traditional edges.


In this showstopper necklace I have used button pearls and hand knotted silk thread; both for security and aesthetics. As I got closer to the pendant I chose a symmetrical layout of wrapped wire pearls of various shapes and colors. The clasp is handmade from gold Artistic Wire (more durable than gold wire) and is attached on the side of the necklace in a non traditional space.

The pendant is polymer clay and the inspiration for the necklace! By conditioning and stacking slices of different colors of clay and compressing the stack, ad nauseam :), it is thinly sliced. Then it is baked in a dedicated oven according to a formula.

The colors and designs are magical! The technique is called Mokume Gane, and it's unbelievably fun to do! I rolled the clay into a free form design, conveying an abstract feel to the pendant. The juxtaposition of abstract and traditional (pearl stringing) is a great balance!

The necklace is 22" long and the pendant is 3" long, so the total length is 25". The pendant is backed with black felt.

It will look fantastic worn with a solid color tee in a casual setting or workplace!
