This necklace is so close to my heart that a video about the making of it is currently in process. The piece is dedicated to resistance leader Hermann Wygoda, my grandfather, whose first act of defiance against the Nazis was to disobey the order for Jews to turn in their radios. The radio he kept in the early days of the war was a shortwave radio. The design for the piece I made is physically based on the Cathedral style radio that was in my childhood home. Learning about his experiences when I was very very young, my child’s mind merged his radio with the one I saw everyday and decades later those early experiences helped produce this piece. Sterling silver, diamonds (.045 carats), blue sapphires (.18 carats), yellow sapphires (.12 carats) and garnets (.69 carats). Brushed satin finish with patina.
Please select from 16" or 18" sterling silver spiga chain.
pendant: 1.2" w (31mm) x 1.9" h (48mm)

Due to the satin finish on this piece and the patina, it may not be necessary to clean this necklace for some time. When that time comes, a polishing cloth is all that is required to for cleaning. One will be included in your package.
