This pendant holds a story; a beautiful story of discovery, life and transformation. Like looking through a window and capturing a single moment, it leaves you eager to explore more and find the mystery that lies ahead.
I designed the overhanging tree branch and little budding flowers (the polished elements at the top and bottom of the pendant) by fusing together Argentium silver. I love working with Argentium silver knowing that is has been refined from only recycled silver. If you want to know more I've written a blog post about it here.
The bezel set rose cut serpentine gemstone is a rich dark green. This gemstone has been responsibly and ethically mined and cut.
I have applied a dark patina to the silver background of the pendant which will only get darker with time. The back holds a little soldered plate of my signature stamp and two little leaf details.
Included with this one of a kind pendant is a 16" sterling silver snake chain (as pictured.)

Each piece of my jewellery is carefully hand packed by me personally before I ship it out. I use thin cardboard jewellery boxes for most of my work and make them pretty enough for gift giving. I always include artist information.
