Bliss… dancing blue starfish necklace

From the beginning,Artist Shirley Matteson designed and
created fine silver jewelry. Here, she has created Bliss, a gorgeous dancing blue starfish necklace with calming blue tones that are certain to stand out.

Taking inspiration from the Australian Blue SeaStar, Shirley 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.

Certainly, 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. Plus, 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 employs the intricate ‘Cloisonné’ technique to craft these dazzling blue starfish. Firstly, she meticulously shapes tiny wires into the distinctive round markings of the starfish. Then, she meticulously fills these outlines with vibrant enamel, spanning a spectrum of captivating blue hues. The result is an unparalleled wearable masterpiece guaranteed to captivate attention.

Rest assured, Shirley’s starfish jewelry is accompanied by a rosewood box, a storage pouch, and a sterling silver chain. Don’t forget to specify your preference for either a 16-inch or 18-inch chain during checkout. And when your stunning starfish necklace isn’t on display, keep it safe in its silvercloth pouch to prevent tarnishing.
