A contemporary tourmaline flower necklace featuring a gorgeous designer Tourmaline. The flowers of the field are a study in determination. Each spire of petals is a declaration for life, and an accomplishment of overcoming all obstacles. The cycle of seed to flower and returning again to seed is a beautiful rhythm of nature’s inherent beauty.
Rustic, charming, and unique, Wildflower is a one of a kind original that celebrates the tenacity of nature and the reflection of that triumph in our lives. Hand forged in sterling silver, this flower necklace features a fused sterling silver and 18k gold contemporary flower, accented with a gorgeous 15mm bi-color Tourmaline set in 22k gold bezel.
Featuring an 18-21 inch adjustable hand forged chain, this tourmaline flower necklace is a unique piece of sculptural art jewelry.
Note from the Artist
I made this tourmaline flower necklace entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures I can create combining fusing, forging, and casting. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Wildflower I was inspired by the unceasing drive of nature’s beauty to overcome all obstacles.
Tourmaline is a stunning gemstone, and deeply saturated specimens like this are simply breathtaking. A unique blue-green bicolor set in luxurious 22k gold, this stone is breathtaking from every angle. Paired with a contemporary stylistic rendering of a wildflower in fused sterling silver and 18k gold, this necklace is a true statement piece.
For this tourmaline flower necklace, I took great pleasure in the complicated fusing of a silver and 18k gold stylized wildeflower. Natural beauty comes in many forms, from the smallest seed to the mightiest oak, and every aspect of the journey between. The constant determination of life to overcome all obstacles is a deeply inspiring never ending journey.
Probably one of my favorite things to create is handmade chain- and the chain in Wildflower is no exception. For this tourmaline flower necklace, I decided it needed even more visual texture to balance the wildflower panel and tourmaline. Each link is hand forged and fused, then twisted and warped into shape. No two links are identical, of course, right down to the hand forged incorporated clasp.
I hope you enjoy Wildflower.
