This lightning bolt necklace is inspired by David Bowie’s iconic album cover, Aladdin Sane, released in 1973. In that album, Bowie is retiring his legendary Ziggy Stardust character. A new glam rock icon comes to life: Aladdin Sane which is a pun for “a lad insane”.
I made this tribute necklace upon the request of my friend Cristina who is a die-hard Bowie fan and I thought she might not be the only one to want to sport her admiration for the glam rock star. The hand enameled lightning bolt necklace would make a perfect gift for all the David Bowie fans in your life. This is the large version, a more dainty version is also available here and hoop earrings are there.
The lightning bolt is approximately 1 inch high and half an inch wide.
You can pick the chain length and I will also add an 1.5 inches long adjustment chain to it.
If you opt for the gold finish, the lightning bolt is in 14k gold micron plated bronze and the chains and clasp are in 14k gold filled.
If you opt for the silver finish, the bolt pendant, the chains and clasp are all in 925 sterling silver.
