- WOW what a RARE and truly FANTASTIC necklace handmade by Mike Simplicio and his wife Sarah. Have you ever seen such an INCREDIBLE example of CREATIVELY and SKILL?! Just follow us with the photo's as we point out the amazing details. You can just imagine the amount of time it took to make this one truly striking piece.
- Please Read!
FIRST THERE IS THE HANDMADE CHAIN. Not you usual handmade chain. This chain has rings between each of the links so that it flows and lays perfectly around the neck without the chain bunching up. Each link was individually twisted into that figure 8 shape that you see there.
SECOND IS THE BOLD CUT, CARVED AND SET STONE WORK. Each stone is carefully and expertly cut to the correct shape. The carved blue flowers anchor the top and bottom of each pendent with flowing colors in between creating a sensational and WELL BALANCED BOQUET! Each flower petal is carved by hand to give that realistic look with a beautiful blue stone set in the center of each one.
FINELY THE PHENOMINAL SILVER WORK! A wonderful combination of wire work is used to tie this piece together. The combine flattened twisted wire as the main stem of the flower with plain wires terminating at stamped silver drops which we think represents flower buds that have not yet bloomed.
There are so many places where they could have taken the easy way out including the twisted wire link that connects the panels but they did not do that. Instead this piece REPRESENTS the BEST of them and simply put is AMAZING!! One might think that with all of these details and components the piece would look messy but that is NOT the case here at all. THIS IS TRULY A MAGNIFISCENT PIECE OF WEARABLE ART AND DEMONSTRATES QUALITY AND SKILL RARELY MATCHED BY ANY OTHER!!
If you have been looking to add a SENSATIONAL necklace to your collection, THIS IS IT!!! NOT TO MENTION THAT IT LOOKS REALLY GREAT ON AND EVEN DRAWS THE ATTENTION OF THOSE PASSING BY. YOU WON'T GET BETTER THAN THIS!!
