Statement Necklace from My Collection Titled Chaos by Jessica  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

I enjoy creating statement metal pieces. I’m a big fan of textures and contrast between materials.

This particular statement necklace comes from my collection titled Chaos.

It symbolizes the stillness after dishevelment, things seem solid on the outside.

I began my process of design by forming the shape of the necklace with tape, painters tape I find is best to work with because of how easy and quickly you can adjust it.

The tape then becomes my pattern. I transferred the pattern to a metal sheet, this metal is nickel silver.

I cut and shaped the metal, filed the sharp edges, sand and polished it before applying the rest of my materials.

I binded the top of this necklace with leather using double sided fabric tape.

I then created the bow from three materials, the shiny dotted pattern, leather and pony hair leather.

Using double sided fabric tape again to keep everything in place.
