WES225, Snow White necklace
Dendritic opal, red dyed bamboo coral, sterling silver
By Camilla West
The links of this sterling silver necklace are created and soldered by hand from silver wire and then oxidised to give them their dark finish, which will change over time, with the recesses becoming even darker and some of the prominent areas rubbing to a shine. This is a natural evolution of the piece through its relationship with the wearer and is one of the beauties of oxidation. The oxidised finish really brings out the bright red of the coral and the black and white dendritic opal gemstone hanging at its centre. This is a long line necklace, but it can be fastened shorter using the handmade toggle bar through any of the chain links.
