Description

If you want this on a chain necklace instead of the choker it comes on, let me know in the message box on checkout as well as the length of chain and I will switch it out for you. If you want to purchase a chain in addition to the choker, please use this listing to purchase.

You Again, Moth! is a design originally concepted for my Eye Don't See collection, a series about the emotion of longing inspired by the  Maltese saying Għajn ma tara, Qalb ma tuġa', (Eye Don't See, Heart Don't Hurt')

The eye focal piece is made in the painstaking technique of cloisonné, where wires are delicately bent then filled with thin layers or powdered glass that is kiln-fired. (For more about cloisonné, check out this link where I walk you through the process in an IGTV).

In this piece, the moth body was created in silver filigree and is the work of artist Kevin Attard, who finished it after my design. The layering of filigree to give the moth its 3-D appearance is difficult to achieve and masterful.

The piece comes on a thick solid silver ring choker. Although the piece was conceived as a high as a choker, the pendant's bails allow for it to be detached from the choker and worn with different chain lengths for entirely different looks.

This piece is a unique piece of art jewelry and a collector's item. You will be getting the piece pictured.
