Faerie of the Wood, Faerie Gathering Neckalce in Sterling Silver
This necklace is the cornerstone piece of the "Faeries of the Wood" collection, it turns heads and has strangers asking me about it every time it's worn. The collection was developed from the inspiration of wandering into an ancient oak grove forgotten by time, and catching the briefest glimpse of faeries among the tree branches. One day when walking through the woods my thoughts carried me to that mystical place and that is how this collection of wood nymphs was conceived.
I started by collecting oak twigs, the more gnarled the better, and waxing small sections of them together to form interesting arrangements. The shapes inspired the faerie poses; crouching, standing, climbing, dancing, sitting or running. Then I sculpted the faeries three dimensionally out of wax; being mindful of proportion, musculature as well as minute detail. When the sculpture was completed I added them to the oak twigs and they were cast together in solid sterling silver. To achieve the finish each piece has been given two different layers of patina, the branches are left mostly dark with a satin luster over top to induce the feeling of old wood, while the faerie is given a higher polish, but still retains antiquing in the recessed areas to showcase the form and detail of the work. Included in the collection are several necklaces that have attached sections of cast twig, a pendant, ring, bracelet and earrings.
The "Faerie Gathering" necklace is cast in solid sterling silver and consists of a collection of 5 major sections of twigs where faeries climb, run, sit and play. These are linked together with sections of silver oxidized twigs and connected by jump rings.
The central section of the necklace measures 3 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches tall at it's widest and tallest points of branches. The necklace is available in 2 lengths 17 1/2 inches long and 20 1/2 inches long, the unusual lengths are dictated by the sections of twigs that I have to work with. The shorter length is shown on the model. Let me know which length is right for you, special order lengths are available by request.
