Monumental Orchid Collar Necklace
This collar is a beautifully bold statement piece featuring a mammoth Moth orchid. The flower is suspended on a curved sterling silver torque and handmade chain.
The orchid measures 3" across and is hand carved from a living moth orchid and cast in rare Japanese Shibuichi (a custom alloy composed of sterling silver and copper), not often found in the US. The result is a beautiful metal color resembling a pale, blushing silver.
