Dragonflies and Blooming Flower Summer Themed Nature Necklace with Topaz and Sterling Silver
Mirroring natural themes, this rustic dragonfly necklace features a blooming flower represented by a topaz stone with sterling silver petals and mixed sterling silver and brass dragonflies fused to a copper backing medallion. Each element is sawed entirely by hand using a fine fret saw and outlined with a dark patina to create a transition between each metal.
► The copper medallion measures approximately 1.3 inches in diameter and hangs from an adjustable US sourced black leather cord with slip knots. Ball chains and sterling silver link chains are also available upon request.
►To personalize your medallion with engraving on the backside such as names and dates for those creative gift ideas, simply enter your requests in the checkout notes box.
►The necklace was handcrafted by sawing the dragonflies from 18 gauge sterling silver and 20 gauge brass respectively, crafting a small sterling silver flower, pressing the medallion disc from 17 gauge hard copper, and adding a precious stone cup to hold the 5 mm topaz. Using an acetylene torch and sterling silver solder, the dragonflies, flower, and cup were sweat soldered to the copper backing disc before applying a dark patina. Extensive polishing allows the grooves along with transitional boundaries to remain dark for added contrast that also serves to create dimension.
►We also welcome custom orders and can create similar medallions with any personalized themes or stones. On this necklace, the stone can be ordered to match birthstones albeit some variation in price should be expected according to stone pricing.
