Birth of Venus Detail of Hora of Spring Necklace
Folkloric is an ethereal jewelry collection handcrafted by maker Elena Carey. Pieces in the collection are inspired by mythology, folklore and antiquity. Through trial and error, Elena has developed a technique working with paper she is able to translate imagery from an infinite number of sources into wearable art, by combining ephemera, resin, metals, cord, pearls, semi-precious stones, and vintage elements.
Sourced from a vintage book of Botticelli plates, this elegant necklace features the image of a Horai, a goddess of the seasons, as she readies to drape the naked Venus in a floral cloak. The piece is coated in a hard, high-gloss resin. The necklace is an adjustable 18-20” on a bronze paperclip chain with a gold fill spring ring closure.
