I love the mixed metals as you can wear them with anything. The size on this is also very versatile. At 1.5 inches across, this pendant is at the perfect point between dainty and bulky.
To create this pendant, I actually wove a traditional Bronson lace pattern using weed whacker line – which made a very substantial weave! When I put this plus the silver into my hydraulic press, at 6000psi the silver flows over the lace pattern creating the interesting texture of this earring. I’m taking the idea of textiles in metal into a completely different place with this series!
As an added bonus, the 18” sterling chain has large enough links that you can clasp it anywhere, making it versatile enough to work with almost any neckline.
