Cinnabar Moon Necklace - Upcycled China & Cinnabar in Sterling Silver
This one-of-a-kind necklace has been created in keeping with a Verdilune philosophy - recycle, reuse, renew! The crescent moon is created from broken china in yellow with a red, blue and white floral pattern by artist Sierra Stone Studios. Set in a smooth bezel on a layer of 21 gauge sterling silver sheet. Above it, a carved citrine moon face is nestled. Dangling beneath the moons is a vintage deep red cinnabar cabochon set in sterling silver. The back is marked GFMW, which stands for Great Falls Metal Works. I found this beautiful piece at a vintage shop. 18" bright sterling silver faceted rolo 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.
