Fully Hand Fabricated Art Nouveau Ginkgo Lemon and Rose Quartz Statement Necklace Handmade Chain
This necklace is currently at the Alberta Street Gallery. If purchased, it will be pulled from display immediately. Please permit an extra couple days for me to pick it up and ship. Thank you!
This piece was a true statement piece that was sketched in my book and really felt like it needed to be made. Soft yellow and pink are quite common colors from the Art Nouveau era, as are ginkgo leaves. This piece has a total of three rosecut yellow quartz stones, three rosecut rose quartz stones, and ten fully hand-fabricated ginkgo leaves, which alternate with the stones. The piece is situated in a way that loops ginkgo stems to adjacent pieces, creating half circles. The piece has an almost Art Deco pattern feel. The chain is extended for adjustability and is finished with a rosecut rose quartz briolette.
Description: The handmade chain begins with two larger loop links, then transitions into segments of descending size links with double-links to give it sturdiness. The chain length is 8.6" on either side, meaning that the basic hang length (at shortest) is approximately 17". With a wide-sitting central piece, this is a reasonable length for it to fall. There is also 2.4" additional wiggle room, meaning that the chain can sit as long as 19.4". Of course where this falls will depend on the width of the wearer's neck.
Check the shop for the matching hoop earrings and bracelet.
Note: If you are rough on your jewelry, you will want to treat this with gentle care. While sturdy, elements should never been twisted, torqued, bent, or pulled/yanked.
All of my work, unless otherwise specified brass or copper (will also be visibly obvious), is 0.925 sterling silver.
Please review shipping and return policies prior to purchase (see link at the top of the page).
US Domestic shipping prices on purchases over $100 include USPS shipping and insurance. International buyers who wish for insured postage are welcome to ask and I can obtain pricing through UPS; you would pay the additional charges. UPS across waters (i.e. not in Canada) are quite high with insurance, but I understand shipping during covid has made many of us nervous.
