Reliquary Necklace No. 3 features a teardrop shaped open locket I created out of sterling silver. I filled the open locket with a vintage porcelain tooth, 3 rough raw diamonds and a garnet bead, I layered them over a snippet of a very old book page. I filled the locket with a clear resin.The slightly asymmetrical necklace is filled with beautiful faceted gemstone beads (citrine, rosecut garnet beads, ametrine, agates and juicy fat freshwater pearls in deep dark rose and gold.Soft torn remnants of fabric are incorporated for an appealing juxtaposition to the 'hardness' of the metal and stones. "She collected the worlds debris. Things that seemed of no value to the rest were of unmeasurable value to her...she saw the items as evidence of lives lived and the touch of humans."All metal used is sterling silver, I've oxidized it for richness and brushed back for depth.Necklace length (from clasp to center of necklace) 20". Drop from center of necklace to the bottom of the open locket is an additional 2 1/2". Teardrop is 3/4" wide, 1 1/2" in length.Completely one of a kind, part of my ongoing exploration into reliquaries, lockets, the allure of disparate elements and my questioning of what is 'precious'..., sterling silver
