RESERVED: Solvitur ambulando - rustic assemblage necklace with vintage dolls and tribal beads

Sorry, this item has sold.

Thank you for looking but this item has been reserved.

Solvitur ambulando (it is solved by walking) is a Latin phrase sometimes used to refer to a problem that can be solved by a practical experiment. But, for me, it is a phrase to hold on to when life seems overwhelming and I need to focus on putting one foot in front of the other in order to traverse a path that is especially difficult.

A vintage porcelain dolls leg, rustically set on dark oxidized copper. The words 'solvitur ambulando' just visible along the edge. The beaded necklace has lava, salvaged tribal patterned, African resin, agate and ceramic beads rosary wrapped with black iron wire.

Around 16 inches (40cm) end to end. The focal is around 3 1/4 inches (8 cm) from top to bottom and 1 1/2 inches (4cm) wide). Closes with a large hand-forged copper hook at the back of the neck.

My work is purposefully rustic reflecting my love for this aesthetic. My solder joins, hammer strikes or stitches, visible on the finished piece. For me, these are beautiful because they reflect the processes and techniques used in creation and are signposts to the journey a piece has taken with me.
