Fossil Pendant, One of a Kind, Gift Idea for Him, 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.
This fossil has amazing rich dark sworls and druzy cavities. To showcase this I created a freeform net of gold plated wire finished with a single spiral at the top. The reverse of this fossil is really as interesting as the front so the netted freeform means you can enjoy this too!
On black faux suede cord finished with antique brass cord ends and matching clasp. Length 26 inches. If you would like this shortened please let me know with your order.
Comes to you wrapped in purple tissue inside a pretty organza bag and information about ammonite fossils - a great gift idea!
