Altered Sterling Silver Knife with Garnet Necklace

Regular price $150.00

Jeanne Boydston- Artist

With my jewelry designs, I try to reflect a classic but casual elegance that will always be in style and perfect for any occasion or outfit. I view my jewelry as a small piece of art-an object of beauty-that the wearer can carry along with them.

This necklace was created from a sterling silver knife handle. It was altered into a pendant with a faceted garnet stone into it's handle. the pendant is just over 1 and 1/2" long. The sterling silver chain is 20" long with clasp as shown.

My jewelry is designed and fabricated one piece at a time. Sterling silver and natural gemstones in cabochon and faceted forms are just some of the many different sources that inspire my work. Also, patterns cast by sunset, or even something as simple as a light fixture. My art reflects my life experiences and imagination. The process of converting an  abstract idea into a beautiful and functional piece of jewelry involves many decisions and challenges. The resolution of these challenges is a process I find very stimulating and satisfying.
