  • the story

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.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre finds her inspiration from her extensive organic garden. Working in the garden among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds, she takes time to fill her sketchbook throughout the growing season. Her drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme, which eventually evolved into the Garden of Silver jewelry line. Many of the jewelry pieces are created by hand carving into wax and then cast into sterling silver. Eileen also etches and embosses the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques. collection

              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.

                    It reminds me of a very special time in my life when I was with someone I love. I will think of him every time I wear it.
