The chain on this pendant is oxidised sterling silver. It moves freely in the loops at the back of the pendant allowing for easy movement when worn.
The perforations under the layer of orange enamel reveal a further layer of enamel below. I was remembering the worn and broken surfaces of metal and wooden doors I studied in southwest France when I made this necklace
The large element in the necklace measures approximately 65mm x 35mm, the smaller element 59mm x 19mm . The length of the chain is 41cm
