The Draugen Necklace in Sterling Silver with Abalone and Freshwater Pearls.
This elegant, rustic necklace showcase the brilliant iridescence in the abalone shell, reminiscent of mermaid scales. The bright pinks, stormy blues and sea greens just can't be captured in a photograph! Named for the Draug, which is a sea spirit in Norse folklore, this necklace is part of the Sindri's Forge collection.
Set in hand forged sterling silver. The shell hangs from a hand forged chain of sterling silver and freshwater pearls which have been upcycled from a vintage necklace. The hand wrapped chain is paired with a soldered sterling chain and hand forged hook-and-eye clasp in my bird mother shape inspired by ancient bird goddess imagery.
The necklace measures 17" or 44cm long. It has been hallmarked at the Assay Office in Edinburgh with the Scottish sterling mark as well as my maker's mark.
