FEDERICO JIMENEZ BREATHTAKING Oaxaca Filigree 925 Ornate Necklace

1,800.00

This design is brand new to Federico's jewelry line & has not hit the market yet & I feel privileged to bring it to  the public!!

 

It is so obvious in this necklace, Federico took one of his most skilled Oaxaca filigree artists to make this!  It is a work of "ART" that is made by the most experienced hands & skilled know how.

 

Filigree is not the easiest to do & is highly time consuming to make it right,sometimes taking weeks, if not month's, depending on how detailed it is & how fine the wire is.With this ornate piece,the finest of wire is used & it's what is done to the wire, that has increased the time that went into the making..Each tiny,fine wire is twisted 1st & then laid into it's own bezel.You see this on the floral petal work,the tail of the birds,in the crescent portion that the little Milagros hang from.

 

The design is made up of 3 large size, graduated panels for the front & that lead to smaller size 3-D Flowers, that are made with a filigree bottom & petals atop of the filigree.Leading to the hook/eye closure are repousse flowers that do not have a hollow back,but are backed by sterling.

Not only is the overall design breathtakingly beautiful & feminine,but the kissing bird center is a something to admire! They seem to look more like a elegant Peacock,with the detailing on the head & long tail,rather than Dove's...These are not cast birds,but rather hand fabricated & are given their feather detail..Their tails are long & are of filigree.(Please zoom in on all the photos,since they play a major role in the description)Little bird charm/Milagros dangle from the bottom.

 

This has "love" written all over it & can also be worn for a wedding! But you don't have to be getting married to wear this! It is perfect for the woman who loves the beauty of not only Federico's pieces,but loves all the beauty that is known to Mexico!

This is a 'win-win' piece & would compliment any Mexican wardrobe.. Would also stand out, when worn against any black dress/top..
