ZAVERI - amulet necklace
When working with the "Spice Route" Wire Artisans Challenge theme I really fell in love with strong colors. So Zaveri necklace is the beginning of a collection with strong electric color combinations - "BAZAAR TREASURES".
First out is Zaveri necklace, named after a bazaar in Mumbai, India, famous for it´s jewelers and their jewelry. I wanted it to look like an amulet of fortune, something you gotten from an old soothsayer to keep all your life.
925 sterling silver wire and findings. Oxidized and polished to enhance the details in the wrapping. The incredible grape amethyst, citrine and apatite briolettes are wrapped and embellished with tiny Karen Hill Tribe beads. One white freshwater pearl.
Pendant is 5x2cm/2x1". Chain measures 62cm/24"
