This star anise was a labor of love. It took me twice as long to make it as I anticipated - each pod formed with hammer and stakes into folded hollow forms. The seeds are solid sterling silver made from recycled scraps. The "bicycle" chain is intricate, hand formed with pliers and my torch.
The handmade sterling silver chain measures 18", designed to clasp at the front. This piece is not light, but yet is comfortable in weight.
This piece is one of a kind.
