Product Description

Odette, the Swan Princess Necklace

love, transformation, magic

Handmade from sterling silver and 18k gold, the Odette necklace shows the princess crowned in silver on the front and transformed into a swan on the back.  Her body is carved from a recycled piano key, and her features delicately scrimshawed by hand.  The necklace is reversible - showing the swan on the back - and beaded with black sapphires.  From the famous Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake ballet, Odette's magical story reminds us that love endures beyond all power, time, and even life itself.  She measures 1.4" x 1.25".

Each goddess necklace is signed on the bottom by the artist, with an easy-to-use sterling silver and gemstone box clasp.  The standard beading length is 19" but can be strung to any length. 

Warranty Information

The timeless story of Odette begins on a moonlight night by an enchanted lake. The prince Siegfried must wed the next day, yet there is no one he loves. Distraught, he wanders to the nearby lake to watch the swans, aiming his hunting bow at one when it suddenly transforms into a pale maiden: the princess Odette. They fall instantly in love, and he begs her to return with him to announce their betrothal before the kingdom.

But an evil sorcerer overhears the lovers and casts a spell over his daughter Odile to resemble Odette. Siegfried sees her at the ball and vows to marry her, yet in a flash of lightening, Odile’s false face melts away! Despairing, Siegfried flees to find his true Odette, waiting in misery for him by the lake. Now never able to be his, Odette kisses her prince and throws herself into the dark waters. Without hesitation, Siegfried faithfully follows his love. Ever after, it is said that two swans can be seen gliding together across the lake, reminding us that love is unconquerable and endures beyond all power, time, and even life itself.
