Beautifully Broken Birdie Necklace - Upcycled China in Sterling Silver
This one-of-a-kind special 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 is from a lovely pale green-edged plate with metallic gold flourishes. Set in a smooth bezel on a double, hand-stamped layer of 22 gauge sterling silver sheet, and adorned with a tiny sterling silver casting of a milkweed blossom. 18" oxidized sterling silver beaded chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur and buffed and polished to bring out the highlights of the metal.
