A graceful swan (symbol of transformation, mysticism, as well as inner and outward beauty) glides across an enchanted lake. The swan is sculpted in great detail while the lake is symbolized with flowing shapes making it appeal to those who are drawn to contemporary designs as well as those of Renaissance and Fantasy.
The overall length of the Swan Necklace can be adjusted from 15-20 inches, making it very versatile for a variety of body types and necklines. The central swan section of this fantasy necklace is 3/4 of an inch wide and 2 3/4 inches long. The necklace is assembled with jump rings that are soldered closed and attached to a black cord with a section of sterling silver chain where the lobster clasp can be fastened on any link. The fantasy necklace is finished with a sterling silver bead which dangles down the back.
As with all of my work this piece of fantasy jewelry was created using the lost wax method. I first start by doing a detailed drawing of my intended subject, then I spend many hours sculpting my design in wax. I start with overall shape and form, then adding detail which includes applying the swan's feathers one at a time. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, sections assembled and soldered together, patina applied, rough polished, then completed by a final polish. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections.
No matter if you are captured by world of fantasy in general, are enthralled by the mystical elegance of swans, or love mythology, fairy tale and Renaissance - this fantasy necklace is sure to please.
