the various and sundry creations of sylvus tarn
Page's magnificent Necklace
triple strand art deco with fringe

This gorgeous piece was made many years ago by my friend Page, and as you see it involves a lot of wirework: each dangle consists of up to 14 individually gallery wrapped 4mm beads, either swarovski crystals or pearls. Note also that each dangle is mounted on a soldered jump ring: this sort of attention to detail helps to give the piece a wonderfully fluid drape—Page's pieces are meticulously engineered.

Sterling silver, freshwater pearls and glass. Photographed 20170921E620, but likely made as much as 20 years prior.

So far as I know, she only ever made the one, and I was very grateful to have the opportunity to photograph such a beautiful piece. It's now in a private collection.
