DEFINITIONS:

ARTISTIC WIRE AS DESCRIBED BY BEADUCATION: This wire is made by first plating the copper wire with a precision layer of pure silver. Then the enamel color and tarnish resistant coating on top of this silver plating is applied. The silver plating beneath the color, adds an incredible high-shine and brilliance to the wire. Artistic Wire is a permanently colored copper wire available in a wide range of colors and gauges. It has an exclusive enamel coating which is engineered to resist tarnish, chipping and peeling.

DICHROIC GLASS:
Dichroic glass contains several layers of glass fused with fine layers of oxides or metals, such as chromium, gold and titanium. The resulting glass has a crystalline structure that splits the light passing through or reflected by the glass. This causes the glass to display multiple colors when viewed at different angles. The glass was initially developed as a part of the aerospace technology for use in satellite mirrors. However, the glass is now used in many other fields, such as art and optics. Dichroic glass is glass that displays multiple colors when viewed in varying light conditions. The changes in color depend on the angle of view. The main use of dichroic glass is for decoration and other forms of art.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Sitting at my work table I knew that I wanted to work with .925 sterling silver wire. I was also fascinated to try the wire weaving technique. As so much of my work does, I start out with one intent and end up doing something totally different. My creations start out as a seed does and spouts into its full bloom. I had seen the star technique in a magazine used a earrings and felt it would be appropriate for the design as the bail to hold a neck chain. Once the star was made it needed something in its center, therefore the sparkle of the aqua blue Swavorski crystal was the ticket. Over the next several days, contemplation of what would be used as the necklace to the pendant was formulating. The choices ranged from a leather, satin or velvet cord. None of these choices seemed to enhance the elegance this piece. Finally it was decided to make a 2x2 chain with .925 sterling silver wire. To enhance the chain to match the pendant the aqua matching beads were added to the chain. This gave the piece balance. Again out of a pile of supplies grew a beautiful elegant and unique necklace.

Items worn around the neck have been adornments for the human body for centuries. The necklace has many reasons for wearing. Drawn to the enhancement of neck has been a passion for a very long time. Making wearable art for the neck is part of the human nature that makes us unique and passionate for life and individuality. Creating one of a kind wearable art is my passion.

Pendants are a miniature piece of artwork that hangs from a necklace. Creating these miniature delights is challenging and rewarding at the same time. All elements of art are represented: Form, line, color, space and texture are all addressed in these little masterpieces. Then how should it be displayed? At times a stand-alone feature item pops out among all the supplies ready to be featured in wearable art. When this happens, a plain leather/fabric cord or a chain with handmade bail and clasp is all that it takes to make it into something charming and ready to wear.

My work starts as an idea then organic growth takes over until the mind screams STOP! I consider my work Wearable Art...Miniature Works of Art, are a way to express ones love of things.

Great shipping, great packaging. I just thought the necklace was going to be more browns and greens and darker. It is a pretty necklace but not what I was expecting from the picture.
