Jewelry design company Femme Metale makes much of the kind of jewelry we've seen in typical trendy contemporary jewelry stores lately. Tattoo, Asian, Goth and rock n' roll inspired pieces that include daggers, hearts, swallows, crosses, buddhas, koi and the like.
But what they do have, that separates them from the myriad of hand-cast sterling silver jewelry presently saturating the market, are some fabulously clever and original necklaces that are a take-off on the sterling nameplates or tags one sees hanging upon a liquor decanter. Hence, the Decant Her Necklaces.
The solid sterling silver pendants engraved to look like the classic Victorian ornate nameplates bear double entendres like "complex" and "lush" as well as simple funny adjectives such as "drunk", "sober", "wino" and "boozer".
The 10 necklaces in the collection each measure 17" in length, are strung on sterling silver chains and fasten with a sterling silver toggle clasp. Each costs $260.00 USD. You can purchase any of them here.

Minor imperfections are part of hand crafted jewelry and I like to call them "beauty marks". The "beauty marks" give each piece a one of a kind feel. I do not use machines to cast my jewelry and each piece is polished and finished by hand. All of the assembly is done by me in my studio.
