Handcrafted silver, one of a kind, pendant, smokey quartz
Inspired by natural leaf forms, this silver pendant started life as a lump of silver clay. To breathe life into the clay it went through many creative stages - cutting, texturing, sanding, drying and drilling. It was then fired and in the kiln the binder in the silver clay is burned off leaving the shiny silver. Magic. It was then sent to Edinburgh Assay Office to be hallmarked before I could finish the piece with the addition of Scotland's national gemstone - smokey quartz.
A great gift for someone special. The pendant sits on a 22 inch snake chain and the gemstone is articulated so that it catches the light when it moves. I could get all poetic and think of sunlight on peaty Highland streams but you get the drift!
