Spring Blossom Necklace
These limited edition of works have been cast in silver from foraged and collected little botanicals I have gathered from my backyard and on my frequent meandering walks.
Perfectly captured in time- this pendant features a silver cast blossom. I have kept these designs simple to show off the incredible detail of the casting. Soldered onto an oval (sideways) background frame with a small elegant bail, this piece is durable and timeless.
Incredibly enjoyable to create, and very time consuming. To cast these little wonders, I attach a number of botanical items to a wax sprue. The wax is then placed into a cylinder and filled with a liquid investment plaster that sets overnight. The cylinder mould is then placed upside down in a kiln and heated up until the leaf and wax sprues have completely burned away. Using a centrifugal casting machine recycled sterling silver is spun into the mould taking on the exact shape of the leaf left in the plaster. I then saw off the sprue and add piece of chenier to act as the bail (the piece that you thread the chain through). Each process done with care and accuracy with some of the pieces not casting exactly as I would like! This blossom was a great success.
Dimensions – This beautiful necklace measures approximately 24mm (wide) and 19mm (high) at its widest and highest points. It is created entirely from reclaimed and recycled Sterling Silver, The Gauge (thickness) of the silver frame is over 1mm making the piece strong and durable.
Made with lots of love, care, heart and soul.
