The Alexander Drape Statement Necklace is a stunning piece. Made from natural colored Alexander Palm sheath that appears to be soft as silk with a beautiful drape. Shelley loves to take a hard material and make it look soft. The necklace is extremely comfortable and lightweight. Completed with antique silver clasps and chain, the necklace's closure is on the front of the piece, making it easy to shorten if necessary.
Completed with a museum quality encaustic wax finish (an ancient preservation process using beeswax and Damar tree resin that fuses into the plant fibers when heated). It can be buffed to a shine or left to a matte finish.
The texture of the sheath is unique in the collection of veins of fiber located throughout the leaf base. The way the fibers crisscross creating a bias pattern helped the leaf in its growth process, and now becomes a pattern of endless connectivity. The wax finish enhances the pattern.
Like all of Shelley's creations, this is a one of a kind piece that cannot be duplicated; it is literally a piece of Hawaiʻi Island. Each sheath is sustainably harvested from natural fallen leaves from beautiful, giant palm trees (about 10 different varieties). A wonderful way to remember your island experience or bring the warmth of the tropics into everyday life. #takehawaiihome
