Bliss… blue starfish necklace
Artist Shirley Matteson designs and
creates handcrafted, fine silver jewelry. Here, she has created Bliss, a gorgeous blue starfish necklace with calming blue tones that are certain to stand out.
Taking inspiration from the Australian Blue SeaStar, Shirley has created a gorgeous, blue starfish necklace named ‘Bliss’. Ranging from deep cobalt to bright blues, these ocean tones highlight the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The result is a luminous blue starfish that’s sure to stand out.
Australian Blue Sea Stars (or Starfish) exist in a wide range of blues. The are most often found in a deep, dark, or even light blue. However, there have been cases of bright aqua, purple, or even orange variations of this ‘Blue’ Starfish! While these creatures are fairly common in the reefs of Australia, they are very rare and exotic to us in the United States. Because they are ocean animals, this necklace makes a perfect gift for beach and water lovers. The rarity of the blue starfish on our side of the world ensures that anyone who wears this jewel is sure to stand out and be truly unique.
Creating the Bliss Blue Starfish Necklace
Shirley uses a technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ to create these luminous blue starfish. First, she bends tiny wires to form the round starfish markings. Then, she fills in the shapes with colorful enamel in a wide range of blue tones. What emerges is a truly unique piece of wearable art that will stand out and get noticed.
Shirley’s starfish jewelry comes with a rosewood box, storage pouch, and sterling silver chain. Be sure to let her know at checkout if you prefer a 16-inch or 18-inch chain. When you’re not showing off your fabulous starfish necklace, keep her in her silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.
If you prefer, Shirley’s starfish necklaces can also be made entirely in 22k gold. Please contact her for details and pricing.
