This one of a kind necklace is hand carved and electro-formed. Forms are enameled with layers of 24k gold, creating a beautiful surface that radiates depth and elegant color. This necklace has a detachable chain and a brooch pin-back, allowing it to be draped around the neck or float on your chest.
Two forms have a lustrous red vitreous enamel finish over 24k gold. The third form has 18k gold vermeil finish. This versatile piece looks beautiful when worn centered, and when worn slightly off center it is an even more dynamic statement neckpiece.
About Our Enamel.
This enameling technique uses finely powdered glass and high heat to fuse rich color to a layer of 24k gold on the surface of the metal. The layers of glass and gold are applied in layers with patience and skill. Shana combines this historic technique with modern methods of electro-forming to create timelessly unique works of art jewelry.
About Our 18k Gold Vermeil.
Most mass-manufactured jewelry has a thin gold “wash” that wears off over time. Our vermeil is 150 microns thick allowing for daily use without showing signs of wear. We guarantee our gem quality heavy plated vermeil!
