The Whale Necklace
sterling silver - reclaimed
sterling silver chain 18"
Whales. If you are reading this, you've probably had an encounter with them. It's surreal to see something that lives in the ocean like that. I think they are remarkable. The turquoise represents the sea and the amber represents the sun and the sun rays that travel into the ocean. Can you believe that sunlight can travel to 1,000 meters into the ocean? There is a zone for the upper 200 meters that is called the "euphotic" zone. I love this necklace and I'm excited to see who gets it!
Made with love - one of a kind, twisted, bent, set, sawn, etched, fired by my own two hands.
Note to buyer: The reclaiming process is a bit of a long one. Most of the sterling silver I buy is from well used jewelry that isn't being worn anymore or has been broken. I also buy used sterling silverware. I melt it all down and roll it into sheet and wire. This means that I don't have to buy freshly mined silver that is much easier to work with. Reclaimed pieces cost more because of this extra process. In the end, reclaiming metal for my wares is gratifying and worth it to me. I hope you feel the same. With love.
