Handmade Nessie Celtic Style Sterling Silver Shawl Scarf Slide
This shawl slide was inspired by the Celtic snake or serpent image. I decided to name it Nessie after the beloved legend from Loch Ness. A heavy gauge sterling silver wire was used for the slide, and to create the tapered ends I used a wire rolling mill and added the curl at the ends for both style and ease of use. The hammered finish at the back gives a finished look and allows it to be used front or back. The diameter is about 1" and can be adjusted. The slide is shown on a shawl made from lace weight yarn.
To adjust the slide use a larger or smaller round wood dowel to compress or open the slide. This will help it keep the rounded shape.
My metalwork is of my own design and I fabricate all my pieces from raw materials by hand in my studio. Almost any design can be recreated for you with other stones or precious metals, a change in necklace length, or can be the basis of a custom design. Most of my designs have elements made from scrap silver recovered from other projects such as beading, wire accents and small leaves. Your purchase will arrive in its own gift box and gift wrap is available.
