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

I have an extensive organic garden that is both serene and stimulating. I find it peaceful to work in the garden and can be found outside among the flowers, vegetables, herbs and weeds with my sketchbook throughout the growing season. My drawings and paintings have always had a botanical theme which has 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. I also etch and emboss the metals to create texture and relief and utilize traditional metalworking techniques as well. collection
