Golden Dreams Necklace
What could be a better botanical to celebrate the golden season than goldenrod? The warm, yellow blossoms of this wonderful herb light up the land all across the northern hemisphere in late summer + early fall, like beams of joyful sunshine.
In the words of Robin Wall Kimmerer “if a fountain could jet bouquets of chrome yellow in dazzling arches of chrysanthemum fireworks, that would be Canada goldenrod. Each three-foot stem is a geyser of tiny gold daisies, ladylike in miniature, exuberant en masse”.
This incredible, one of a kind necklace is entirely handcrafted from recycled sterling silver and features a sturdy, double-layered hand-sawn goldenrod flanked on either side by warm, golden, rosecut citrines. These citrines change color depending on the light - pale yellow in bright light, warm mustard gold in darker light. I've bezel set the stones and connected them to the goldenrod centrepiece using jump rings to create movement. The necklace measures 18 inches from end to end and can be shortened upon request. Just leave me a note at checkout or send me an email via the contact form. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a jewelry care card.
