Underwater Fantasy Fused Sterling Silver Brooch or Necklace
I titled this brooch "Underwater Fantasy" because it reminds me of an undersea coral garden. If you look closely you may see a mermaid, abalone shell and a pearl in the piece.
I used a torch to fuse sterling silver sheet and wire together at around 1600 degrees. Creating each piece is an adventure, because although I have a lot of control and experience, silver sometimes melts in unexpected ways, making each piece one of a kind. I added colored resin for a more contemporary look. I used a standard pin back and include a custom made necklace adapter so that this piece can be worn either as a brooch or a necklace. The finished piece is 1.75 x 1.5 inches in size. The chain is just for display purposes and not included.
It is handmade in the USA, signed, dated and copyrighted by Laura Wilson.
This order included the beautiful OOAK pouch I made a to keep it in.
