This window pendant holds two pretty blooms growing together and a round Labradorite gemstone. The Labradorite cabochon has a subtle flash of bright blue when held at just the right angle.
Included with this pendant is an 18" box chain, also with patina (as pictured.)
Labradorite Double Bloom Pendant // One of a Kind
♢ Solid sterling silver (100% recycled)
♢ The two flowers were created in metal clay, which is made up of tiny, recycled sterling silver metal particles mixed with and organic clay like binder. It can be sculpted, molded, and formed however I want. For this design I have a little mold that I press the clay into to create the blooms. After the design dries 100% into my kiln it goes for a two-part firing process. The clay reaches 1500℉ for about an hour and the organic binder burns completely away leaving a solid sterling silver mini sculpture in its place. Its fairly new way of working with precious metals, but it's amazing!
♢ The frame, stems and dew drop circles have all been fused and soldered in place.
♢ To represent the moon I bezel set a dark grey round labradorite gemstone, it has a subtle flash of blue.
♢ I apply a dark patina to the recessed areas of the pendant and the high points are polished to a bright shine, creating a beautiful contrast. This contrast is what sterling silver is famous for! I especially love it for my window pendants as it reminds me of night.
♢ The back has my signature MP stamped and soldered on.
