The Ocean Pendant Necklace
This posting is for the heart of the collection, The Ocean Pendant necklace. The design is an adaptation of my personal necklace I wear everyday, I wanted to bestow my strengthening tools to the rest of you.
The bones of the pendant have been hand fabricated out of sterling silver, but instead of having an open base, it’s been filled with a fine silver piece of giant kelp, the roots of the Ocean, sprawling across the world, resilient and prolific. Sitting atop the kelp, in a 14k gold bezel, sits a STUNNING piece of abalone shell, found on the California coast, as were all the natural materials used in these collections. The base of the pendant is capped by two fine silver nautilus spirals. The pendant is hung from two 14k gold hand formed jump rings. It’s hung from an 18” sterling silver snake chain I found hunting for the PERFECT chain in my travels through New Mexico. ((Visbile in the 7th and 8th photos))
The pendant has a diameter of 2 1/4" and weighs 1 oz (or about 28g).
