Steel is hard, rustic, and durable. Silk is soft, rich, and fragile. These two materials go together well in this necklace, I think. I’m still getting to know the annealed steel as a jewelry material. As hard as it is to work with physically, it certainly makes strong, sturdy components that one doesn’t need to worry about coming apart. The red crystal links will be earrings with another crystal dangle or necklace components.
Love the deep, saturated colors with the dark gray steel, don’t you?
