Bird, birch and star ~ gold, white gold and enamel necklace
Bird, birch and star in gold and white gold with a 1.5mm ‘star’ ~ a salt and pepper diamond.
This piece is the story of journeys through the dark, the light of a single star as a guide. Some birds travel using the stars as a map, known as the star compass. The bird flies and her wing nearly touches the star as she travels away on risky adventure. Flight as freedom but also the unknown.
Made in 9ct gold and framed in 9ct white gold. Hand cut and and painted with enamel using a process called Champleve and torch fired over and over until complete. he enamel is Blue black. The trees are a soft grey, here I was thinking of birch trees, a symbol of growth and renewal finished in a soft matte. Flush set into the piece ~ a diamond. The chain is white gold and can be a length of your choice (the default is 16 inches) and the clasp is handmade.
The piece measures approximately 1.5cm in width and 1.3cm in height.
Please do note that each piece is made individually and therefore there may be small variations in each detail i.e. the wings may be slightly different.
Bird, birch and star may take up to 6 weeks to make.
The necklace comes boxed and wrapped.
