Beautifully Broken Daisy Bird Necklace - Upcycled China in Sterling Silver
This one-of-a-kind birdie has been created in keeping with a Verdilune philosophy - recycle, reuse, renew! The bird "cabochon" is created from broken china by artist Sierra Stone Studios. This particular bird came from a modern china plate in a crackled cream background with mustard yellow and grey flourishes. Set in a smooth bezel on a double layer of 24 gauge sterling silver sheet. Above the bird is a solid cast sterling silver daisy. Tiny sterling silver balls adorn the edges. On the reverse side is an asymmetrical brass heart. Suspended from a bright sterling silver chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur and then tumbled in a special medium that buffs the metal to bring out highlights, followed by a tumble in steel shot to make the metal shine.
