This lovely necklace was cast from a real piece of waxy honeycomb with an alloy
called shibuichi (35% sterling, 65% copper). It has a little drop of honey –
a tiny citrine – set into one of the holes and it has a handmade bail,
a handmade clasp and comes on a 22″ sterling chain. 1.5″.
A textured sterling silver necklace with a mookaite and an ocean jasper. 1.5″ on an 18″ sterling chain.
A real acorn on a twig that I picked up in the park near my house. I removed the cap and carved it empty to reduce weight, but it’s still not a light piece of jewelry. I cast the acorn with a Japanese metal alloy called shibuichi that is silver and copper and then lightly oxidized the piece and the chain to give it more “close to the original” look.
