The triangle focal piece on this neckpiece is a piece of brass found during one of my rummages through a bin at my local scrap yard.
Hammered and pierced, the focal piece is wrapped in pure silver wire threaded with tiny recycled glass beads.
These tiny beads are made from ground recycled glass in Africa. A fabulous use of waste glass, but also these tiny treasures are their livelihood.
A tiny disk of hammered, patina’d hot water cylinder dangles off the bottom, and the piece is attached to a hand beaten chain made from recycled copper and brass with hammered blobs of solder.
