Large Teardrop Necklace
Handcrafted by Susan Fleming of Jackson, Wyoming. Fleming is the founder of Workshop, her working studio and retail space featuring unique, handmade items.
Orange and red floral Chiyogami paper are set in sterling silver and protected under a waterproof protective resin.
Japanese Chiyogami were originally developed in the Edo period as woodblock prints and were used to brighten the interiors of farmhouses. They are hand silk screened, and Susan carefully extracts a scene from each ornate sheet of Chiyogami to create the necklace.
Set on a 1.5 mm sterling silver ball chain.
