Bacchus II Lariat

To the Greeks he was Dionysus.  To the Romans he was Bacchus.  To both cultures, he was the god of wine and intoxication. 

I created a wine-themed lariat for York School's fundraising gala on March 5th, 2011; I liked it so much I decided to make a similar piece for sale with slightly different gems and glass pieces.

This Bacchus lariat features a hefty sterling silver grape cluster on one strand and Bacchus's face on a grape leaf on the other, recycled glass in deep red and black, garnets, and hematite are handwired with sterling silver complete this one-of-a-kind piece.  Click here to purchase this piece on etsy.
