Sterling Silver Laos Flower Necklace

This beautiful handmade flower necklace comes with a strong 18" woven chain.  The flower pendant features the Laos Dok Phikoun flower which is thought to assure good health and fortune. To create this flower necklace, sterling silver is hand run through a flattener until it becomes a very fine silver wire.  Next the fine wire is run through a spindle to create the petals to the flower. As the center of the flower is being melted, the spiral has to be uniformly cut by hand to be heated and adjoined with a very tiny silver beaded centerpiece. The flowers in this necklace are held together around the centerpiece by four sterling silver rope twists for structure.
