Black Eyed Susan Necklace
Handmade brass and cast abaca paper fiber petals, hand-dyed, with a sterling silver 16" chain and a handmade silver clasp. The flower is about 2 inches across.
VERSO jewelry is made from wire forms dipped into abaca paper fibers suspended in water. The fibers cling to the wire and shrink as they dry. A tight paper skin is built up on the form over successive dips.
The paper-skinned forms are then sealed to make them water resistant and durable. You could get caught in a rainstorm wearing your jewelry.
