In her Portland, Oregon studio, our artisan Liane creates each ''mother's pendant'' sculpted spiral necklace by hand-cutting, texturing and forming ribbon curls of brass which are then sealed with a clear matte lacquer to reduce tarnish. To finish, Liane adds a single genuine freshwater pearl 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'' necklace is handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan. No two are exactly alike. Necklace measures approx.16 in. long with a 2 in. extender and 2.5 in. long pendant. Lobster clasp.
