Modesty Bronze Necklace
Hand forged bronze Modesty Fig leaf pendant with sterling beetle on 29 inch oxidized sterling chain. Modesty pendant is 4.5 inches.
Inspired by the intricate Otomi embroideries of Oaxaca, Mexico, Julie features floral and fauna themes in this collection. Textile motifs were translated into hand fabricated bronze adornments.
As a child of the 70's, Julie grew up doing a myriad of crafts with her sister, including embroidery, sewing and other textile projects. This interest continues today, as she collects indigenous textiles during her travels.
Just outside the studio door is a Fig tree. The name Modesty refers to the fig leaf used to cover up the private parts of Classical statuary as well as a reference to the Garden of Eden.
You may also like the Fig Leaf Bronze Earring, the Bronze Iron Leaf Pendant Necklace, the Hibiscus Bronze Pendant Necklace, the Goldfinch Bronze Pendant Necklace and the Tulip Bronze Pendant Necklace.
