Frolicking Faerie Necklace with Single Faerie and Stone Accents
A carefree, enchanting faerie delights as she soars on this magical piece of fantasy jewelry. Pick from any of 5 different faeries and one mermaid for the center focus of this high quality aritisans sterling silver necklace. The linked scrollwork medallions are set with stones which add to the mystical quality of this faerie necklace. The scrollwork of the triangular and oval links are echoed in the wings of the faerie, bringing the entire design together in a truly magical way in this piece of fantasy jewelry. The faerie is sculpted three dimensionally so as you move she swings and takes on life of her own.
The overall length of the Frolicking Faerie Necklace is 21 1/2 inches long and can be adjusted to wearable lengths between 15 - 21 inches by attaching the clasp to any link of the chain. This makes the fantasy necklace perfect for a variety of wearing preferences, necklines and body types. The end of the chain is finished with a triangular scrollwork piece which dangles down the back. The length of the faerie is 1 1/2 inches long. Along with the faerie, the scrollwork oval and triangular pieces are all my original design and creation. The ovals are set with 6mm of Rainbow Moonstones, it is a stone of mystery, self-discovery, intuition and insight. Other stones are also available including, Labradorite, Black Star Diopside, Citrine, Garnet, Prehnite, Lapis Lazuli and Amazonite.

As with all of my work this piece of fantasy jewelry was created using the lost wax method. I first start by doing a detailed drawing of my intended subject. Then I sculpt my design in wax. I start with overall shape and form, making sure all the individual pieces are proportional to each other, then adding detail such as facial features, fingers, toes, hair and scrollwork wings. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, linked together, soldered, patina applied, stones set, then completed by a final polish. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections. The only purchased parts of this handmade faerie necklace are the chain, jump rings, clasp and stones.
If you love this sterling silver necklace, but are curious about other options, versions are available with 3 and 5 faeries. There are also pendants of the individual faeries with cool scrollwork bails, one with and one without a stone. There are also matching earrings making it a truly stunning fantasy or Renaissance jewelry set. Take a little enchantment with you each day with this beautiful faerie necklace.
