Accented with ivory tassels and brass, this hand made knot necklace is hand-wrapped in satin Egyptian cotton thread in a clay color. Like an ornate frame, with a golden brass sun suspended below, setting in the horizon, the Sunset Collar is an open weave knot. With the look of fanning out like a butterfly and resting on the décolletage, it is deceptively light as it floats along the body.
Hangs 15 inches long from clasp to bottom of tassels.
Lise Silva is an artist based in Oakland, CA. She explores the power of symbols through her work with Sacred Knots creating fiber jewelry and wallhangings with handmade cord entwined in knot designs that serve as a metaphor for life experiences, dreams, and deep desires. Her collaborative jewelry designs with metal worker and Spirit Speak tarot creator Mary Elizabeth Evans, called In The House of Lovers, is a ceremonial collection of Artwear where they experiment with innovative design and mythic iconography. As an extension of Lise's exploration in symbology, meditation and visualization are a tool in her creative process. She leads guided meditations as a tool for manifestation, lucid dreaming, mental/emotional balance, creativity and relaxation.
