Description

This necklace throws matchy-matchy metals to the wind. I was inspired to this carefree philosophy by the twig pendants. One is sterling silver with a brass bail while the other is bronze. To combine them in a necklace would mean opening the doors to mixing metals something I hadn't tried before.

I used a medley of chains copper, brass, sterling silver, and vermeil attached with shibuichi (an alloy of copper and silver that, when heated, yields beautiful colors) connectors and tiny bird beads in different metal finishes. I was surprised at how well the different metals worked together. The finished product is a hodgepodge but a happy hodgepodge at that. And I think the twigs look quite at home.
