In her Portland, Oregon studio, our artisan Liane creates each ''mother's pendant'' necklace by hand-cutting, texturing and forming ribbon curls of brass, then sealing each piece with a clear matte lacquer to reduce tarnish. To finish, Liane adds two genuine freshwater pearls hung from delicate brass chain fringe to represent the loves in your life, all suspended from an antiqued brass chain. Liane has been hooked on metalwork since she enrolled in her first jewelry class nearly 20 years ago. Manipulating brass with only simple tools and her own two hands, this Oregon mother was inspired by her own two children to create a collection showcasing a mother's love through her creations, as she transforms sheet metal into wearable works of art. Each ''Mother's Pendant'' is hand-crafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta and measures 16 in. long with a 2 in. extender and 2.5 in. long pendant. Lobster clasp.
