The process begins on an etching press. This necklace is made of tiny collagraphs - a textured relief printing process. I print the paper myself on ‘washable paper’ - a German-made product of cellulose and synthetic latex. I then assemble the necklace with oxidized sterling silver and iridescent glass beads. It has a hand-fabricated ‘s’ clasp. The chain is 18 inches long and will sit at the wearer’s collarbone, the longest paper ‘dangles’ are 3.8 inches (see photo on mannequin). While I would not recommend washing it, the necklace is quite sturdy!
