This three part necklace now comes with a handwoven silver chain of over 500 hand-fused links made by my partner, Holly Troy. The chain is 16″ long, and as a piece of jewelry, stands out on its own.
The three pieces of the pendant were made to be worn together, or separately, whatever your mood or the occasion. The two “pendants” are hollow forms, and the dinosaur bone comes from Southern Arizona.
The dinosaur bone is a rich, earthy red brown mixed with flecks of red, rust, gold and purple set against polished silver.
The large piece is about 2 1/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide, and the small piece is slightly bigger than 3/4 inches long by half an inch wide. The pieces altogether are about a half inch thick.
These earrings sold so quickly I didn’t get the chance to photograph them with the earring wires!
This pair is completely handmade – the copper and silver were cut out with a jeweler’s saw and hand-hammered. The fluctuations in the metal catch light so that there are gentle glimmers of light with the movement of the earrings.
The silver reminds me of night, and the copper reminds me of the day – hence the title: Dusk and Dawn.
