Floating Petals

Long, hot, summer days and a glorious display of beautiful flower petals was the inspiration for this necklace. I wanted to create something bold, modern and stylized. These petals started off as leftover pieces of sterling silver, melted into balls and hammered flat. They were then carefully formed and filed into little petals. The insides of the petals have been given a charcoal patina to bring out contrast and further enhance the form of the petals. They float around a silver wire as though they were floating on water.
