The enigmatic summertime favorite, captured in glistening Sterling Silver, is a customer's favorite T and Brie Treasure. Our Firefly designed to convey Nature's incredible artistry, is made by hand in New York. Enhanced with a beautiful, dynamic high-dome Rainbow Moonstone Cabochon with it's special blue flash, that we set in our signature inverted settings, the sturdy oval link cable chain is enhanced with faceted Moonstone Beads, wire wrapped near our Hook or Lobster Claw clasp.
"And he sang the song of the children, Sang the song Nokomis taught him; Wah-wah-taysee little firefly, Little flitting, white-fire insect, Little dancing, white-fire creature, Light me with your little candle."
Hiawatha, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1855
We apply a natural, oxidizing patina and lightly hand brush our Sterling for a matte finish, creating personal amulets with a treasure feel. A unique Necklace to connect one with all things magical about summer evenings and hopefully delight and please for many years to come.
Size: Our unique Firefly is 3/4" long. This phosphorescent beetle is created on different lengths of your choice beginning at 16" of our sturdy yet delicate oval link cable link chain with four faceted Moonstone gemstone beads at the clasp. A small Sterling Lobster Claw style clasp is also an option. Also available with our Hook and Eye clasp, also fastened with faceted Moonstone beads.
"We are inspired by details of our surroundings, some often overlooked and Nature with its myriad forms and transformations is a constant source of inspiration. We have a reverence and keen interest in the history of adornment as well as the long history of design which informs our process. Our sculptural pieces are created in sheet metal and wires using traditional metalsmithing techniques, from sketches we keep in our journals of observations. We strive to distill an essence of history and handmadeness in our works; T and Brie strive to create personal talismans that will nurture a connection with nature." -- Teresa de la Guardia, Designer & Metalsmith
