Handmade Jewelry of the Day: Fluxplay Choker Pendant

Choker, Pendant, Blue Gold Tile. Silver, Recycled Tin.

I'm squeakin in just under the wire with today's Handmade Jewelry of the Day (in my time zone at least!)  Maybe I should have chosen an American Jewelry artist on July 4th but instead I was struck by this unique piece from British jeweler Maria Whetman of Etsy shop Fluxplay.  This choker necklace features a striking piece of reclaimed tin set in a handmade sterling silver setting on a handmade forged sterling choker.  I love the texture of the choker and the pattern of the reclaimed tin.  This is such a clever way to re-use a beautiful material that might otherwise go to waste.
