Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,~Raven's Midnight Visit~ Necklace~ Such a mysterious bird of it time- If only the Raven could tell his tell. This piece was created for the love of mystery! The large glass pendant has been handblown glass and I sculptured a Black Raven Bird with a berry in it's beak, Moon and tree branches out of glass stringers. Then I silver smithed the piece into a sterling silver bezel pendant. I added a blooming 3D handblown sunflower glass bead in a sterling silver bezel setting. The piece is hung on sterling silver rolo chain mixed with black onyx stones and black crystal swarovski ovals. Finished off with a black crystal swarovski crystal branch dangle. I finished it off with my favorite S
wrapped sterling silver clasp balled, hammered and polished. The whole piece has been oxidized to create an antique feel to the piece. I also signed the piece on the back of the pendant and added a few petals. The over all length of the necklace is 26 inches long.
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
Only this and nothing more."
Edgar Allen Poe
