A large raw amethyst - deep purple at the base, fading to pale at its mountainous peak - wrapped in golden toned wire and hung on double stranded golden brass chain with Ethiopian silver metal beads.
The wrapping uses a fiber technique to create a net around the stone. I have sanded and oxidized the wire in places to give this piece greater depth (I struggle with anything that is too shiny!).
This is a large and heavy stone with a high profile, making this a true statement piece. The bales and ends of the double stranded chain have battered Ethiopian silver metal beads. The front of the stone is adorned with a golden metal bead charm.
End to end (when the necklce is laid out flat and measured across including the top of the amethyst) around 18 1/2 inches (47cm). The drop (ie one half of the chain) is a little over 8 inches (20cm).
The stone is around 2 1/4 inches (5 1/2 cm) from top to bottom and much wider at the base. It has a profile of around 1 1/4 inches (a little over 3 cm).

On average, I find shipping to most places in the world takes a couple of weeks. It can, on occasion, take longer. I ship most non-domestic items with tracking so you can keep an eye on your item as it wings its way to you.
In this world of online shopping, free shipping is becoming the norm. I'm trialling offering free shipping for some of my items to see if this suits my customers' better.
All my items are wrapped and ready for gifting. I ship most international items with tracking (some smaller items like earrings, may not have tracking as it makes them unreasonably expensive). Domestic items are generally posted Express so you can get them quickly.
Of course. What's the point of jewelry you aren't going to wear! Shopping online is convenient, but sometimes you need to see a thing up-close and and in-person to know how you really feel about it. If you'd like to return your item, just let me know within 14 days of delivery.
My work is organic and purposefully rustic. My pieces take a journey with me as I create them and this aesthetic celebrates the signposts that mark this journey - surface stitches, tool marks, texture and patina are beautiful.
I use found and salvaged objects a lot in my work. These tell a story and reflect my commitment to sustainability.
Pricing is one of the hardest things for an artist. I try to keep my prices accessible, whilst reflecting the time and materials that have gone into creating my pieces.
My process is very organic and personal so, the short answer is no, I don't generally take custom orders. However, please feel free to reach out to me if you have something in mind. I've worked with several of my regular customers to create a piece that uses a material or object that holds a special meaning for them.
