This is a handcrafted Filipiniana necklace. I hand-sawed a silhouette of a Filipina woman wearing the traditional Filipiniana dress (with poofy sleeves) out of brass sheet metal. After preparing the pendant by hand-sanding and filing the piece, I applied a thin layer of laquer to prevent tarnishing.
This is a beautiful necklace with black spinel beads that complete the necklace. Black spinel is a stone of protection, which also provides inspiration and a sense of empowerment.
This is a hand-sawed piece. Due to the hand-made nature, no two pieces are exactly the same. Slight differences add to the beauty of each piece.
Thank you for supporting an independent artisan.
