This necklace ist a special one-of-a-kind piece:
The pendant is made of book pages, using the book "A Wild Ride Through the Night" by german Author Walter Moers, whom I worship as much as his protagonist Gustave.
Using drawings from the work of Gustave Doré, the most successful illustrator of the 19th century, Walter Moers has once again created a wondrous, utterly enchanting tale.
I love the work of Doré, and the idea of being honoured in the way Walter Moers does in this book brought me to the idea of making a homage jewelry piece of it.
By layering many pages one on another, the finished pendant is showing fragments of illustrations and letters on ist surface.
The handforged sterling silver setting is jeweled with a princess cut iolithe.
The collier is made of five strands of tiny faceted black spinel beads, which fits the "night" topic perfectly with its mystical sparkling.
The book paper pendant is waterproof as all my paper layer pieces are.
The necklace comes in an attractive gift box.
length 46 cm
