The Finished Necklace - Auction Begins August 31st



I present to you, the finished necklace to be auctioned with proceeds going to NARSAD, The National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression


The necklace is completely comprised of sterling silver and took about ten hours to create. The necklace was created based on a photograph submitted by Melissa Mercier, a great photographer from Vancouver who submitted her work as part of a collaborative project to raise awareness for schizophrenia and depression research.

The bulk of the necklace is chain maille in European 6-1 weave, with a finished length of 19", which can be customized by the successful bidder. A 3/4" width piece of chain maille hangs at the center with hinged joints to the main necklace.

Below that is a 1/2" plate of sterling silver, with a high shine to resemble to the water in the photograph. The silver plate is mounted deeply behind the chain to give a seamless impression. The necklace is finished with a large sterling silver hook clasp, built into the weave of the chain maille.



The back of the necklace is lightly burnished.



The auction will begin August 31st at 9am pacific time. Bidding will close September 6th. Final times will be confirmed as soon as possible. The auction will be held at Ebay. If you do not have an Ebay account and would still like to place a bid, submit a silent auction before August 31st, by emailing me at elena at elena-adams dot com. If anyone bids beyond your maximum, I will email you to let you know.

Bidding will begin at $120 to cover the cost of materials. I am donating 100% of my time.

I hope this event is a huge success. With a family history of depression, and friends affected by far too many mental illnesses, this is a cause I feel very strongly about supporting. The only way we can make this work is if you will help me spread the word.
