Handmade boho multistrand silk necklace | boho choker, sari silk necklace, earthy colors, layering necklace

Sorry, this item has sold.

Boho multistranded silk necklace with African faux amber beads and copper.

Playing with colour and texture in my jewelry is one of my favorite things to do. For this piece, I have gathered lengths of raw sari silk in a glorious earthy color palette of warm orange, pale green and dusky dusky reds. Some of the indvidual lengths have been twisted and stitched to form organically shaped cords, others I have left loose and embroidered with a running motif.

Wound copper beads are threaded over the silk - these can be re-positioned on the silk wherever you like. The individual lengths are not braided together so will position themselves randomly - gently twist the necklace to give a tighter, more bunched up look.

Around 17 1/2 inches (45cm) end to end. Closes with a hand forged copper hook.

My work is purposefully rustic and raw. My solder joins, hammer strikes and stitches are often visible on the finished piece. For me, these are beautiful because they reflect the journey a piece has taken with me.

I frequently use salvaged and recycled elements - not only do these have a story of their own to tell, it also reduces the environmental impact of my work.

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.
