Emmy Chain Necklace with Gemstone & Insignia Charms



I feel honored to be one of ten jewelry designers who will be represented by The Artisan Group at the celebrity gift lounge, and will be including 100 pieces (of a much smaller nature) from this collection for the celebrity swag bags. This piece is a simpler version of the necklace that will be displayed at the 2013 Primetime Emmys, for those customers who want something with a little celebrity flair, but simple enough to wear every day!

I adore anything that feels like it has a story to tell. That includes these wonderful insignias, which I create using Victorian-era brass intaglios stamped in Metal Clay. This particular insignia features a posey turned toward the sun.

Once stamped, the metal clay is fired in my kiln at temperatures nearing 1300 degrees. I then oxidize and polish each insignia to bring out the detail and a high shine. Because each insignia is created by me at the time your order is placed, there will be slight variations in size, depth and edge detail. If you prefer a very smooth edge, please let me know and I will make every effort to accommodate your preferences.

A strand of lightly oxidized hammered sterling chain has been secured to a handforged sterling circle (1.25" across) which as been hammered and oxidized, then tumbled for a high shine. A handforged S-Hook provides a secure clasp. The sterling chain adds sparkle and texture.

Other gemstones are available, and it's always nice to customize a piece of jewelry using a birthstone, or children's birthstone(s), so please just let me know if you would like to tailor this piece to suit someone special.

Your jewelry will arrive in a lovely little box with anti-tarnish liner perfect for storing your new treasure, or ready for any gift-giving occasion.
