Loosely inspired by the shape of an old-fashioned window weight, this necklace is designed specifically to cast cleanly and efficiently, speaking directly to the inherent beauty of the sand casting process. Hand cut master. Sand cast and finished in house. The bottom of the necklace shows a raw sawed texture, seen in the last image, from when it was was cut from the sprue. This cut is performed by hand and the pattern left will vary from piece to piece. The cord is hand braided in house using a kumihimo loom. I splice the clasps in place using an original technique. The sides of the clasp can pass through each other when the slots are lined up precisely perpendicular. The tan cord is pigmented rather than dyed and will fade to pale white or grey (based on your lifestyle) over time. The other colors are all very stable. The yarn from which the cords are braided is polyester, dyed, spun, and waxed here in Maine. All color options will stretch slightly over time. 22” circumference including clasps. If you would like a different length (up to 30”) please leave a note at checkout. Color images to come...
