This Delicate Octopus Choker Necklace is a small-scale sculpture of an octopus arm soldered into a fine cable chain. These are hand-sculpted with attention to detail. The wax master is polished, cast, and hand-finished. We make wax replicas from the master, then cast it in low-tarnish silver. Finally, each piece is soldered into fine chain. This is a sterling silver necklace, the vermeil has an additional finish of 18K gold vermeil (a thick layer of gold).
