This necklace is inspired by the succulence of raspberry. It features hand fabricated raspberry leaves and three raspberry sapphires.
The necklace is handmade out of quality sterling silver using traditional fabrication silversmithing techniques.
The handcrafted raspberry leaves leaves measure 4.5cm x 2.6cm, 5cm x 2.8cm and 3cm x 1.4cm.
The three rose cut cabochon sapphires are raspberry in colour. They measure approximately 1.5cm x 1.6cm. The stone settings are handcrafted in fine silver.
The chain is completely handmade. Each link is soldered shut.
The necklace measures 19-20 inches long - depending on which link you use at the back to fasten it closed.
It closes with a handmade hook clasp.
This necklace has three larger jump rings at the end of the chain. I added these intentionally as a symbol of commitment to reconciliation. The three links represent the 'silver covenant chain' that was a treaty between Indigenous peoples, especially the Haudenosaunee, and early settlers to Turtle Island to foster friendship, respect and peace between them. The covenant was created in silver because it tarnishes if you don't tend to it. It was a visible reminder that friendship, respect and peace needs to be nurtured with care.
