“A rose is a rose is a rose…” except for the beautifully formed center of this delicate necklace, in sterling silver and natural red coral, which will last much longer than the real thing – for generations, even. The artist, who creates lovely pieces that are accessible to all, has formed the chain into a series of linked, openwork hearts, knowing that roses are an eternal expression of love.
Glistening petals of sterling silver are accented by the center of natural red coral. Beautiful to see; beautifully comfortable to wear, since the carefully wrought chain of hearts is much easier on the neck than solid links. Each flirty, lacy heart is individually hand formed, and so are the links between them – a labor of love, surely. Even the clasp is handmade – a decorative twist of silver.
This would be a heartfelt gift – delighting giver and recipient, both. And if you give it to yourself, that works too. Distinctive, definitely feminine, and laboriously fashioned by hand, this is an unusual, dainty and pretty necklace. You’ll love giving it, or receiving it!
