Blue Borage Necklace # 171

Adele Stewart

By Adele Stewart

"The blue borage cluster has special significance to me. My Dad is a beekeeper and I have fond memories of going up into the arid high country with him to tend the bees collecting the blue borage wildflower honey.

Each blue borage flower is 10mm high and 7mm wide (about the size of my pinky fingernail)

The whole cluster measures 45mm from the top of the bail to the bottom of the lowest flower.

Each flower is shaped and enamelled by hand with care and attention to detail.
These little creations are all slightly different, due to the hand crafted techniques used.
The enamel reacts to the slightest of changes in the process of the crafting. This gives each flower a unique charm, with subtle flares of colour and changes in the texture of the silver. Each piece ends up a bit of a surprise, just as nature intends.

Made with sterling silver, glass enamel and glass beads.
All components are also sterling silver, including the 18 inch chain."
