By Lily Morda: I have been working with Italian wire mesh ribbon for years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how versatile this amazing material is! In this necklace, a soft hand-dyed silk tube is decorated with the mesh in both white-silver and light sage green. Then the whole piece is hand-embellished with glass beads and silver plated floral bead caps. The pendant features a hand-made lamp-work bead by artist Tim James, as well as a hand-made ceramic bead by a local Italian artist. Hand-made silver-plated filigree dangles decorate the heart. The piece is finished with soft braided leather for cool summer wear.
