Borte necklace - Borte ogrlica

 - Just watched ( for a second time since last night ) a fascinating movie " Mongol " ( The rise of Genghis Khan ) by Sergei Bodrov Sr http://www.mongolfilm.ru/site/en/genghiskhan/ . I was so charmed with overall aesthetics ( costumes, stage design, the beauty of people who acted, their horses,  landscapes, filmed in Khazahstan, China, Russia, Germany and USA ) that  I even managed to go through brutal scenes of fighting and murders which I would normaly avoid. I named this necklace after Temudgine's beloved wife Borte since I feeled so inspired. I sincerely recommend this wonderfull movie to everyone!


Here are some details about the necklace: 
*** Borte necklace: copper wire necklace with a pendant;
- Materials: copper wire of different gauges, jade, hematite beads;
- Techniques: wire wrap, wire crochet, wire weaving, hammering;
- Finishing: oxidized, polished, laquered;
- Dimensions:
 * Total lenght: 48 cm

- Upravo sam ( po drugi put od sinoc ) odgledala film " Mongol" ( Uspon Dzingisa Kana ) od Sergeja Bodrova http://www.mongolfilm.ru/site/en/genghiskhan/. Bila sam toliko odusevljena celokupnom estetikom filma ( kostimi, scenografija, lepota ljudi koji su glumili, njihovih konja, predela ( snimano u Rusiji, Kini, Kazahsatnu, Nemackoj, SAD ) da sam uspela da odgledam i brutalne scene borbi i ubijanja koje bih inace zaobisla.  S obizrom na momenat inspiracije ovu ogrlicu sam nazvala " Borte" po Dzingis Kanovoj voljenoj zeni.
