DESCRIPTION

This is a one of a kind sterling silver and brass hexagon chain necklace. The entire necklace was made from spools of silver and brass wire and silver chain. The entire necklace measures about 34 inches in length and has 3 strands. The middle strand of hexagons is brass, while the rest of the necklace is oxidized silver. Although this necklace is lengthy and has multiple strands, it is very light and easy to wear. It has a feminine, yet industrial look to it. This necklace is ready to ship, packaged in a recycled, labeled box with lace ribbon.

This necklace is now also available in a polished silver finish, if you'd prefer a shiny silver version just choose the option before purchasing!

METHOD

I cut several different sized wooden dowel rods, then coiled silver and brass wire around them and sawed them out. Once I had well over a hundred rings in various sizes, I soldered them all closed and then formed them into hexagons using a hammer and mandrel. Once all the hexagons were formed, I sawed each other one open, connected them all together, and soldered them closed to create 3 different chains. I sanded and hammered a light texture on each hexagon. Once each chain was complete, I joined them with handmade closures. I polished the entire necklace in a tumbler for 12 hours. For the last step, I applied a patina to give the silver pieces of the necklace a gunmetal finish.
