petal necklace.

I found these delightfully colored petals in a basement at an estate sale.  The original purpose of these beauties was samples for wrought iron lawn furniture. I like to think that they were sitting in the same place for forty years just waiting for me to find them.  These are exactly the kind of items The Associate would pilfer from my studio,  and I have a fondness for large statement necklaces, so I got to work.

I first cleaned them up a bit because they each had a sticker with the code numbers and color.  Using a large link vintage chain I made jump rings for each petal.

Using malleable aluminum 16 gauge wire, I made a crude framework to hang the petals on, and layered them in a pyramid fashion.

Using the remainder of the chain I completed the necklace.

I think I’ll wear it tonight.
