Rustic Hoop Necklace
Simple riveted sterling silver hoop necklace for eye-catching texture. The imperfect and highly textured silver shows a layering in the sterling made from combining layers of silver together and heating them until there is a fuse and then backing away the torch. The forming and coiling happens on steel forming stakes until the forged circle is imperfectly perfect.
This sterling silver hoop necklace features forged and embossed textures for the modern warrior. Contemporary lines with an edgy vibe. Hand forged silver hoop with just the right amount of rough elegance. One of a kind, dressy and rustic, empowering and a touch of badassery.
Organically forged with wire wrapped detailing, the Rustic Hoop Necklace silver hoop necklace explores the spontaneous choices that life brings us, and our experiences every step of the way. Hand forged, this silver hoop necklace is accented with a beautiful black patina and eye catching wire wrapped detailing.
Chain length is adjustable up to 27 inches. Hand fabricated from sterling silver, made in my one person shop in Atlanta GA USA.
Note from the Artist
I made this silver hoop necklace entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Rustic Hoop Necklace I am inspired by the layers of experience that give us strength in our daily lives.
Every experience we have shapes our nature, giving us the strength to achieve our wildest dreams, to overcome unexpected setbacks, and to endure life’s toughest conflicts. Overcoming obstacles and achieving long held dreams, our life is a montage of defining moments conquered and memories claimed.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the texture in Rustic Hoop Necklace is no exception. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy this Rustic Hoop Necklace.
