This little drop pendant is the perfect size!
It features a little flower I created from sterling silver precious metal clay and a bezel set round dark green Jade gemstone. This Jade was responsibly sourced from British Colombia, Canada. Both the sterling silver flower and the Argentium silver drop shape frame and back of the pendant are refined and created using 100% recycled silver.
I have applied a dark patina to the recessed areas to provide that beautiful contrast that Sterling silver is known for.
Small Flower Drop Pendant // One of a Kind
♢ Solid sterling and Argentium silver (100% recycled)
♢The Flower was 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. After the designs 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.
♢ I finish the pendant with traditional metalsmithing techniques to create the silver frame, bail, and bezel.
♢ The little dark green cabochon gemstone is Canadian Jade, ethically sourced from British Columbia, Canada.
