This necklace is a collage of some of the things that I love most. Dendritic Limestone, Antique Paper, Mica, Sterling Silver and Gold. The pattern on the stone is formed by naturally occurring fissure that over time filled with mineral solutions and stained the rock. I love the root-like pattern and the rough yet soft surface. The image on the back is from an Illustrated London News from the 1850s. I love the detail of the image and that the paper is handmade. The image is covered in mica and the chain is oxidized sterling silver with a few 18K gold links.
Sterling silver, 18K gold, dendritic limestone, 1850's Illustrated London News paper, and mica, 35 inch oxidized silver & 18K gold chain.
