Lift Your Head

The sunflower may be the most head-turning bloom in the garden, as it turns its face to follow the sun. This dynamic sunflower necklace is a head-turner as well. Inspired by the flowers sprouting up in her own garden, artist Eileen Baumeister McIntyre carves the flowing, floral form in a wax mold, which she uses to cast a solid sterling silver pendant. She then gives it a burst of brilliant sunshine with gold plating on the petals. The pendant is held high on a mid-length silver chain. Like a Van Gogh painting that blossomed into three-dimensional life, it's a precious, wearable work of art that will light up your favorite look. Handmade in Long Island, New York.

“The simple act of slowly getting into the 'zone' usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me.”

“The shapes and textures of flowers, petals, seeds, vines, and leaves” are what stimulate Eileen Baumeister McIntyre’s creativity. Fortunately, she is able to find natural inspiration aplenty in the extensive organic garden that surrounds her Long Island studio.

Eileen, whose rich art training includes botanical illustration, often begins the creative process by opening up her sketchbook. “The simple act of slowly getting into the ‘zone’ usually sparks some kind of creative excitement for me,” she says. Expressing herself through precious metals in a process that involves hand-carving her jewelry and then casting it into sterling silver, Eileen says her designs are a “celebration of the enduring beauty of nature.”

Disappointed

By 

from Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Golden Sunflower Necklaces:

First let me say I am keeping the large sunflower necklace. I appreciate the artist talent and skill. I wish she respected her buyers. The chain is an insult. To add to my dismay the hole for the chain to go through is welded on and so small I had to take it to a jeweler. I had intended to buy the moonlight on the ocean collection, but will not now.

Beautiful Flower - better than expected

Comments about UncommonGoods Golden Sunflower Necklaces:

I ordered this for my wife who loves sunflowers. I couldn't afford the larger version and ordered the small one. I was afraid it would be tiny - too small to be seen at a distance. However, it was exactly as advertised - 0.5 inches and beautifully made.

Beautiful but Dull

By 

from Boston, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Golden Sunflower Necklaces:

The necklace was as advertised, except that it came dull. I had to shine it myself before giving it as a gift, which was an unexpected hassle (not the biggest deal, but unexpected).

Otherwise, beautiful

        Chain was badly tangled and tarnished

        By 

        from Gainesville, FL

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Pretty Sunflower

        Cons

        • Chain Was Badly Tangled
        • Chain Was Tarnished

        Best Uses

          Comments about UncommonGoods Golden Sunflower Necklaces:

          Pretty necklace - but I was disappointed that the chain was all tangled up and took me quite a while to get it all straight. I thought I was going to have to ditch the chain and buy a new one. They should be able to package better so this does not occur. Also the chain was very discolored - tarnished - on the part of the chain that was in front of the holder so it is a 2 tone chain and hopefully will be fixed with silver polish. Very disappointed in these facts since this is a special gift for my step daughter who recently lost her young husband to a heart attack. He was the sunshine of her life.
