I have always loved silhouettes, but felt they were a little too prim and proper for me. Here, the tradition of silhouettes has been reworked into silver and given a bit of whimsy. The seriousness has been softened by a border of playful twisted wire, reminiscent of carefree doodles.
It starts with an oval of silver, to which a hand-cut custom silhouette is soldered. The silhouette is framed by twisted wire, and strung on a chain that echoes that frame.
The charm is oxidized and then sanded to create a striking contrast, a nod to the traditional silhouette.
Necklace measures 16″ long, and the charm is 1″ tall.
