Fossil Pendant, Gift Idea for Geologist, one of a kind, made in Scotland
The Isle of Skye is well know for its fossils and I am totally fascinated by them. This necklace is perfect for anyone who loves natural style - the unique ammonite fossil makes a real statement.
Ammonites once lived in the seas between 240-65 million years ago and are believed to be named after the Egyptian God Ammon who took the form of a ram. Their shape liked a curled rams horn inspires me as a designer and is perfect for wire wrapping. Each fossil is of course unique and I like to be free form in my wire wrapping to suit the individual shape and colours of the particular ammonite I am working with.
To compliment the dark dense sworls of this particular fossil I chose contrasting antique bronze and gold plated wires. The wire wrapping also lets you enjoy the reverse of this fossil - with its flashes of red - as much as the front. Finished with wire spiral detail and wire wrapped bail, on a soft mink coloured satin cord with gold plated cord ends and clasp. Length 24 inches.
Comes to you wrapped in purple tissue inside a pretty organza bag and information about ammonite fossils - a great gift idea!
