Biseauté Beveled Oval Mother of Pearl necklace

124.00

This is a ready-made UNIQUE necklace – this particular piece of Mother of Pearl is quite thick compare to the rest I've made thus far.

........
Inspired by the Venetian's beveled mirror that I'm completely obsessed with! This is part of the 'Stella' Mother of Pearl (aka Nacre in French) limited edition collection – where old world elegance meets clean modern simplicity.

Every piece is 100% handcrafted, from eco-friendly Sterling solid silver & right down to the pieces of Mother of Pearl that's been cut and carved from an antique dishevelled MOP gaming coin found through my treasure hunts in Paris. The piece has been securely riveted on a silver plate through the back and front of the whole pendant.

The origins of the MOP are of vintage French gaming coins which I'd hand-sawed, carved & polished specifically for this collection – they've been securely riveted onto the silver sheet where you see the dots are. The silver's surface textures are made from real linen cloth, the results echo the tactility of the faraway world some of us once knew.
........

Their approximate measurements:
• Oval pendant is 2.3cm wide x 1.95cm high
• there are 2 lengths to this necklace; 16inches / 41cm & 17.7inches / 45cm
• thickness of the MOP (Nacre) is about 3mm
• Entirely made with oxidised* Solid Silver.

*The oxidised patina is a surface treatment which over time will wear off bit by bit leaving you a lovely vintage look. You may however re-patina it for an overall grey finish at home using a simple non-toxic technique. Please contact seller for tips.
