Ortigia long silver necklace with 5 silver sections randomly positioned along the length. Inspired by the ironwork in a window in Ortigia, Sicily. From the Journey to Sicily.
The necklace measures 35" in length.
The island of Ortigia was where the Greeks first arrived to Sicily. The maze of streets are best enjoyed in the early morning light when the town is quiet and undisturbed by man or motorcar. When the streets are deserted and the doorways and windows have only spiders as visitors, then there is time and freedom to wander pensively. It was on one of these mornings that I spied some wrought iron work in a small window and created the Ortigia link. It would become a bracelet and even more successfully, a long necklace.
