This is a substantial, one of a kind, statement necklace, not to be ignored or forgotten.
Nearly 4 oz. of sterling silver in 5 different gauges and sizes went into this project. The jump rings are the highest quality by Spiderchain. I was fascinated by her Graduated Serpentine design, and here is my asymmetrical spin on that.
The necklace measures at 22 inches long, plus the symbolic "Viper" pendant at 2 inches long, which is my original design with sterling silver and jewelry brass rings.
The sterling silver toggle is secured and user friendly:-)
"Razzle Dazzle, Starbuck Takes on All Eight" is inspired by the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica (BSG) Season 1, Episode 4, Act of Contrition. Starbuck's determination to "do her job" also lead her face to face against 8 Cylon Raiders. Tigh uttered in disbelief, "Starbuck is going to take on all eight?" gave me the idea of creating this necklace.
The brass-mixed pendant is a stylized Viper; the 8 chambers of Full Persian above are the 8 "Raiders", each with a red anodized aluminum rings holding in a Swarovski crystal. The asymmetrical graduated Full Persian hints at the more evolved, more organic Raider interior.
Now you know:-)
I have long been fascinated by the stories of BSG and totally enjoyed watching the entire show. As I watch (and re-watch) each episode, I create a piece of daisykreates original handmade jewelry with inspirations taken from the name of the episode, a line in the episode, a scene, an act, or a soundtrack.
These jewelry pieces are not endorsed by anyone related to BSG, and are not intended to infringe upon any of BSG rights. I am an admirer, showing appreciation for the best TV program EVER! If any official BSG representative feels otherwise, please let me know; the last thing I want from this line is to upset the BSG creation.
