Richly patina'd brass stampings are joined for eternity to create this impressive mythical winged lion Statement necklace. The finish is a stunnin g rainbow 'flame painted' heat patina showing vivid orange coloring with purple, russet, green and blue as well. Beneath dangles a beautiful handmade tassel of matching patina brass chain beneath a tulip bead cap in a luxurious copper / rose gold plating, topped with a rhinestone rondelle and a Swarovski crystal bead. The piercing eyes are Swarovski crystal in the incomparable fiery 'Sun' color. The chain is solid brass with a matching patina. Photographed agianst white and black backgrounds to try to capture the color; the photo on my mannequin Victoria was photographed outdoors in natural light and is the most accurate.
This piece works with several styles, blending well with Victorian, Gothic and Steampunk, with an Old World Neo-Classical vibe. From 'leather jacket and jeans' to CosPlay! It would make a very strong statement worn with business attire, as well. Be warned, though - you will likely attract a lot of attention!
The entire piece was cold-connected - the only glue used was to set the eyes. Closes securely with a gold plated lobster claw clasp. This piece is built to last for generations, as strong as the majestic creature it portrays.
All of the metal is American made. A wipe with a damp rag and an occasional once-over with a polishing cloth will ensure it remains bright. Completely lead- and nickel-free.
The wing span measures 5-1/3 inches, with a drop of a hair over 4-1/2 inches from the top of the lion's head. The length is adjustable up to 21 inches.
Hand crafted in my home studio in Tacoma, WA.
