If you are looking for a flower necklace, statement necklace for your wedding jewelry, a very special Valentine's gift for your sweetheart, or a stunning necklace to wear on the red carpet, or any special occasion, this is the necklace for you!
This amazing silver flower necklace is the premier piece in my acclaimed Flower Series. This pendant was chosen as a 2011 Saul Bell Design Award Finalist and included in the prestigious Showcase 500 Art Necklaces by Lark Books.
My Flower Series is inspired by the sensual flower paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe and the feminist installation, The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago. The flowers are bold expressions of our femininity, sensuality and love of beauty. Each flower is OOAK and handcrafted by me in my California studio. The petals are individually sculpted and combined into a flower form using fine silver .999 pure, the entire piece is then kiln fired at 1650F for 2 hours, leaving the stunning pendant in pure silver. This one is also embellished with 22 karat gold, which draws the eye into the center of the flower.
The large, heavy flower measures 2” across and the petals stand .75” high. It hangs by a hidden bail from a heavy, multi-strand braided sterling silver .925 chain which is 16” long and includes a 3” extension.

The last photo shows this necklace on page 103 of Lark's Showcase 500 Art Necklaces. Some of the Flower Series are shown in the multiple flower photo for comparison only and are not included in this listing.
An article featuring these flowers and the method that I have developed appeared in Art Jewelry Metal Clay special issue, April 2012.
I have many other flowers in this series, both large bold statement necklaces and petite flowers for everyday wear. The series also includes rings, bracelets and earrings. I am also happy to work with you to create a custom flower just for you. I will be adding more to this site soon.
All jewelry is gift boxed with ribbon, ready for giving.
