Necklace. Bronze, enameled steel, sterling silver.
"Inheritance" is designed as a nontraditional photo locket. It features a vintage photo of my grandmother, studied in three variations. I allowed the organic and volatile nature of torch-fired enamel to create a distressed effect on the images.
The three photo tiles are prong-set in bronze, clustered on a long, oxidized sterling silver chain with a hardware-inspired bronze closure and bronze lost wax cast honey bee detail.
