Sage Brush Necklace
Handcrafted in Livingston, MT by Maria Gotta of Nest's Studio Art. Part of her Nature Inspired Series, this beautiful necklace is made by using the pedals of a Sage to create its gorgeous texture and an orange cubic zirconia for a pop of color. Wildflowers are definitely a perfect symbol of the great Rocky Mountains. This piece has a slight patina to bring out the texture and dimension of the pedals. The pendant hangs from brass and copper jump rings on a sterling silver cable chain.
Maria's original silver jewelry is created using PMC (precious metal clay). PMC is made with recycled microscopic particles of fine silver and an organic binder. After she molds and textures the silver clay, the piece is then dried and fired in a kiln. While in the kiln the organic binder, that is the clay, burns off and we are left with 99.9% silver. Each piece is then buffed to a shiny silver, with a slight patina to bring out details in the impression. Once the piece is finished, she adorns each pendant with a leather cord or a sterling silver bead chain, while the earrings receive handcrafted ear wires. Since each piece is handmade, imperfections will exist. This contributes to each piece's own uniqueness.
