When I was making this necklace I was thinking about the song Castles In The Sky. I like the idea of a floating palace somewhere in the sky. Held aloft with magic and guarded by dragon gargoyles and sinister skeletons.
The center stone is an oval black onyx, so dark and mirror like it reminds me of a scrying mirror. The chains hanging in front cascade down with a miniature athame in the center.
Cast here is solid bronze, this castle piece measures about 2.5” in length. I hand texture and patina each piece to give it an aged and worn look and feel.
While depicted here with leather cord, I have been attaching these with a bronze chain with a toggle clasp for the necklace instead.
*Please note: all pieces take 2-3 weeks to complete
