I love how these beautiful faceted marquise shaped garnets look with oxidized sterling silver!
To create this piece I hand forged and hammered sterling silver wire and then attached the stones using hair thin sterling. The edge is wire wrapped with tiny sterling silver beads, and then everything is suspended on thin rollo chain, adorned with little faceted red garnet rounds. Necklace is finished with a spring clasp and an extension chain to adjust the length.
I oxidized the necklace in Liver of Sulfur and selectively polished it back to shine to create depth and contrast.
