Ocean Goddess Collar

Ocean Goddess Collar


I've always had a penchant for reinterpreting ancient jewels and I'm especially fond of the various collar designs that reoccur through the ages.  This is a style of necklace that has been around for millennia and is as classically elegant today as it was over two thousand years ago. 

My current, and very Urban Primitive, take on the classic collar necklace is a glorious statement piece, the Ocean Goddess Collar.  I've broken azure powder glass beads from Ghana and set the shards into nine rustic fine silver medallions, the centerpiece medallion has a teardrop shard dangle.  During the firing process, the glass slumps into the bezel settings and takes on a lovely sheen. 

The shades of blue are simply luminous ... like having tiny tide pools surrounding your neck.  The nine medallions are linked with a very urban sterling silver cable chain, ending with two articulated fine silver bars that hug the back of the neck. 

The 16.5" collar ends with a sturdy forged KVK hook and link clasp with a 1" sterling link extension.
