Talisman Necklace with Purple Sapphire
This is one of my talisman necklaces, they are a type of charm necklace in a grouping of three charms, a silver charm, reminiscent of an Art Nouveau style sand dollar, set with a genuine purple sapphire, a small textural silver charm, and a purple sapphire gemstone charm. These charms all relate to each other by color, texture and geometry.
The large sand dollar charm was cast in recycled fine silver from a mold I made of a vintage button and set with a purple sapphire. The charm measures just under 3/4 inches (about 19mm) round, the sapphire is about 1/8 inches (3mm) round. It is connected to the chain by a purple spinel wrapped with sterling silver wire.
The smaller textural silver charm was cast in recycled silver from a mold I made of a Victorian era button and measures just under 1/2 inch (12mm) round.
The small gemstone charm is a purple sapphire and is wrapped in sterling silver wire.
All the pendants hang from a 20 inch (50cm) long sparkling diamond cut sterling silver ball chain. Please see last photo for where this multi pendant necklace lays. I am probably average sized, 5'4" and about 145 lbs so on a larger person it might hit higher up and on a smaller person it might hang lower. 16 and 18 inch chains are readily available. Longer chains may be special ordered.
