Pirouette, Opal Doublet and Sterling Silver Art Nouveau détresse style

Sale price $367.99 Regular price $460.00


Inspired by the swirls in ice by ice dancers.  The graceful curves that start slow and languid, then become faster and more dramatic as they near the center.  

The clasp is decorative and in the front.  The two curves join like two ballet dancers locking arms and twirling around each other.   This was meant to evocate a whimsical sense of joy.  The "swirls" are handcrafted from 14g Sterling wire.  

Materials:  Opal (lab-created) doublet and Sterling Silver (100" recycled Sterling)& crystal

Measurements: 1 1/4" tall by 1" wide.  16" beaded accent sterling chain is the default unless otherwise noted.  The clasp is in the front so I need your exact size since there is no extender in the back.  I am happy to adjust the chain up to 22" at no additional charge. )

I make my own Opal doublets.  They are made with a mix of hydroquartz and faceted Austrian crystals.  I left the Opals unbacked, so the polished inside of the settings allows the inner fire to reflect and showcase their wide array of colors.  Each one is slightly different, even though I cut all the Opal at the same time. The variety is from the year-long process that these cultured lab-created Opal.  I tried my best to show all the colors, but they will surprise you in a good way in person.

All the silver for the backplates is melted and recycled by yours truly.  I melt all my silver scrap and recycle it into usable sheets.  I purposely push the silver to look distressed.  So you will see silver hammer marks, cracks, and pits.  These are intentional.  I am capable of producing silky buttery smooth finishes.  But I find they lack character and bore me.  I love the gritty realism of scars or battle wounds left during the handmade process.

This is a set and will come with matching sterling silver and crystal earrings.
