Amulet necklace with Ethiopian silver beads, viking knit chain, wrapped beach glass

Sorry, this item has sold.

Rustic boho assemblage necklace with a handmade viking knit chain created from oxidized copper wire and Ethiopian silver alloy beads including a beautiful large eye bead; three charms dangle from the hand forged copper hook at the front of the necklace:

- beach glass netted in black iron wire
- Mexican milagros key amulet
- chandalier bead in a little silver metal bell cap

Around 18 1/2 inches (47cm) end to end. The longest charm (beach glass) is around 3 1/2 inches (9cm) long. Closes at the front with a hand forged copper hook.

Viking knit is made by looping wire through itself whilst on a mandrel, and then drawing the completed chain through smaller and smaller holes so that it compresses. It has been found in archaeological sites in Scandinavia and the British Isles from the 9th and 10th centuries (hence the name Viking knit).

My work is purposefully rustic reflecting my love for this aesthetic. My solder joins, hammer or tool marks visible on the finished piece. For me, these are beautiful because they reflect the processes and techniques used in creation and are signposts to the journey a piece has taken with me.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wow, Australia is a long way from me. How long will it take for my item to get here?

I find items shipped to most places in the world (other than Australia, which is where I am based) arrive within Australia Post's designated shipping time of 6-10 days. It can, very occasionally, take longer. I ship with tracking as standard so you can keep an eye on your purchase as it wings its way to you.

How do you ship your items?

All my items are wrapped and ready for gifting. I ship international items via Australia Post with tracking as standard. Most arrive within the designated Australia Post shipping time which is 6-10 days (it can, on the odd occasion, take longer). Domestic items are shipped via Australia Post and should reach you in 2-5 days.

Can I return my purchase for a refund?

Of course. What's the point of jewelry you aren't going to wear! Shopping online is convenient, but sometimes you need to see a thing up-close and and in-person to know how you really feel about it. If you'd like to return your item, just let me know within 14 days of delivery.

What's your aesthetic and your pricing philsophy?

My work is organic, purposefully rustic and raw. My pieces take a journey with me as I create them. I use found and salvaged objects wherever possible as these tell a story and reflect my commitment to sustainability. My aesthetic celebrates the signposts - surface stitches, tool marks, texture and natural patina - that tell the story of that pieces journey with me.

When you purchase one of my pieces you are purchasing something that is one-of-a-kind, completely unique and which has taken many hours to create.

Pricing is one of the hardest things for an artist. I try to keep my prices accessible, whilst reflecting the time and materials that have gone into creating.

Custom and personalized orders

My process is very organic and personal so, the short answer is no, I don't generally take custom orders. However, please feel free to reach out to me if you have something in mind. I've worked with several of my regular customers to create a piece that uses a material or object that holds a special meaning for them.
