Silver Gemstone Necklace

I saw these origami gemstones on which inspired me to make this necklace
Hollow constructed Sterling silver and sterling silver plated with custom paperclip hinge.

I constructed these silver gemstones out of sheet metal, hollow and light to wear. Then scored them, folded them and soldered the seems together pretty much using the same idea as when you work with paper - just a little harder.

My class just finished and I already sold one of my pieces (not pictured) It was a smaller and single silver gemstone in a necklace. Pretty exciting :-)  Happy 4th of July \!!/


  1. This is beautiful! I've been enjoying reading your blog... found my way here via your folded paper bracelet that I spotted on CraftGawker. I look forward to future posts.

  2. Thank you Ann Martin, that is very sweet of you to say. I hope to post more frequently in future :-)

  3. WOW! This was awesome! :) I really like that you showed how you made it! Are you Danish or Norwegian, btw? Tina =)

  4. I am Danish, but I've been living in the US for the past 5 years. What nationality are you? It's fun to know:)
