Ancient Scroll Necklace Finished !!!

Happy to report the winning bid for this necklace at the UpRising Yoga Fund Raiser November 10, 2012 was $115.00


Finished today!  

This was quite a project for me.  My PMC skills are definitely being improved upon and then I soldered the sterling silver jump rings closed and oxidized the silver to match the bead more completely.  I'm very happy with how it turned out.  The entire necklace is about 22" long and the diameter of the bead and silver is approx 2" across.
I also received my new lap grinder so I was able to grind off the back half of the bead in order to make a cabochon to set into the hand carved .999 Fine Silver Bezel and Setting.

Now, I go improve.
Wiping sweat off my brow...

This piece has been donated to UpRising Yoga for the silent auction next Saturday evening, 
November 10.

  4. Hey! Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about art glass in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about art glass.
    Most antique art glass was made in factories, particularly in the UK, the United States, and Bohemia, where items were made to a standard or "pattern". This would seem contrary to the concept of art glass as distinctive and showing individual skill. However, the importance of decoration in the Victorian era in particular meant that much of the artistry lay with the decorator. Any assumption today that factory-made items were necessarily made by machine was not generally so. Up to the end of the 1930s the majority of processes involved in making decorative art glass were performed by hand.
    All of the Le Verre Francais art glass collection sold extremely well and bidding was competitive. A “Lizard” pattern vase in yellows and reds sold for $3600, while patterns like the “Rhododendron “ and “Ash Tree” brought $3120 and $2880 respectively.
