Behind a historic 100-year-old church near my home, there was a playground hidden among a ton of ivy, tall grass, and fencing. The playground was used for a preschool program that was held at the church 20 years ago. I fell in love with how the place felt forgotten, the paint peeling off the equipment and the rust. The tall grass, poison ivy, and bees made the area a little dangerous.
This piece is a reminder of discovering the playground...it was like walking into the Secret Garden. It is magical, beautiful, and reminiscent of being a kid. The enamel in the setting is etched copper and flux. the piece has Poison Ivy growing all around and almost taking over the piece so you can't decipher what it is. The back has a print of the diamond pattern beneath the ivy. The piece is held together with a rivet.
The chain is oxidized Sterling silver and is included in the purchase of this piece, please specify the length if you choose to order.
