Dragon Enamel and Sterling Convertible Necklace-Broach

Regular price $250.00 $0.00
This is a broach that converts into a necklace. The bail for the chain folds up when you want to wear it as a necklace and down when you want to wear it as a pin. The enamel design depicts a dragon. The drop is a fresh water pearl.

I began this piece by doming a disc of copper. I then created the  enamel design through successive kiln firings of glass colors onto copper. The dragon's breath is illuminated with silver foil. After the enamel was completed, I constructed a sterling silver bezel setting for it using traditional silversmithing techniques. I completed the necklace by setting the enamel and suspending it on a 18-inch sterling and 14K gold chain. The pendant is 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/4 inches across.
