Gold “Basket” Necklace

  • June 6, 2012 11:53 PM

Sometimes I check photographs of jewelry I had handcrafted in gold, and came across this 14k Gold necklace which I’ve designed and handcrafted in the shape of baskets connecting to each other with loops on their backs.

The “baskets” were made by creating a model in that form,  in the Repoussee technique and then cast into 14k gold pieces. The loops are handmade and soldered to each part seperately after hanging them on the bow on their open flower shaped side.

Length of the chain is 45cm. The clasp is a 14k gold hook.

This chain is a model and can be custom ordered.

Sometimes I look at all the remains and scraps of silver which I collect while I work at my work bench, and say to myself “You must do something with it. These scraps are lying there and should be made into something”. So a few mornings ago, I  sat decidedly at my table,  picked up the sterling silver pieces I had collected  from the box, and was at a loss what to do with them. Knowing that my creativity develops once I begin, I picked a piece of paper and started to draw shapes of earrings, chose one of the shapes in my drawings and began to hammer the scraps, filed them, granulated a few tiny ones and soldered them to the larger ones,added the earwires, tried them on and went to the mirror to see what I have come up with. I think I did not do too badly. Hope you agree!
