Gold and Turquoise Horizontal Bar Paper Necklace

This custom horizontal bar necklace will be modeled after a combination of elements from customer provided photographs as well as the Sweethearts and Crafts necklace found HERE.  The major elements include:

1) horizontal bar pendant in turquoise and bright gold, measuring approximately 2-2.5 inches in length (photo #3)

2) 14k gold-filled petite cable chain measuring your custom length

3) in order to more closely resemble customer photos, I will attempt to add extra gold material to each side of the bar pendant.  This will replace the gold loops on top of the horizontal bar and becomes where the pendant will be attached to the chain. (photo #4 - I'm not certain I will be able to do this but I will try a few things to figure out if it will work).

Shimmery golden glamour with a pop of turquoise elegance, this horizontal bar necklace is eco chic perfection.  Handcrafted entirely from strips of paper, this piece will feature a turquoise horizontal bar wrapped in bright gold.  It will be carefully hand painted in a sealant which makes it slightly shiny, water resistant and UV resistant.  The pendant will hang from a petite gold-filled cable chain.  This necklace is super lightweight.

 

Dimensions:
Chain length: your custom length

Pendant size: 2-2.5 inches long

Total necklace length: Your custom chain length + 2-2.5 inches

14k Gold-Filled Cable Chain: 1.3mm (Please note this is a petite cable chain, not as stylized as the elongated gold plated chain pictured)

 

What is quilling?

Quilling is also known as paper filigree. It is an ancient art form that involves curling, rolling, looping, scrolling and coiling thin strips of paper into various shapes for decorative and artistic purposes.

All of my quilled paper jewelry is what I like to call "rain or shine", as I carefully hand-paint each piece with a sealant that makes it water resistant and UV resistant. This sealant also provides a sturdiness to the paper which makes it just as robust as "regular" jewelry. I do not recommend swimming in or sitting on your quilled paper jewelry :) but it is suitable for everyday wear. As with all precious jewelry, careful storage of your paper jewelry is also advised.
