Stormy Seas silver pendant
Although I'm originally from the Midlands, I have lived on the South Coast of England for almost 20 years now. Through good times and bad, I have always found a walk by the seafront to be a great comfort and restorer of perspective, and this pendant was inspired by the constancy of the sea despite its ever-changing moods. Use it as a talisman for strength to remind yourself that you have weathered all manner of storms and you're still here, or else, just as a reminder to yourself to spend more time by the sea whenever you possibly can!
The pendant features choppy ocean waves set in relief against the backdrop of a stormy sky. It has been carefully hand cut from precious metal clay, a material which offers a more eco-friendly alternative to mined silver as it uses reclaimed silver. (To learn more about this, please take a look under the Silver Jewellery notes on my About page). The pendant is formed from two pieces of silver which have been fused together and hand-detailed, both before and after firing. The pendant piece has been antiqued with a dark oxidising patina to provide contrast and finally, finished with microcrystalline wax, to resist tarnishing and finger prints. On the reverse side, it is quality marked 999, which denotes fine silver.
The pendant measures approximately 1.5 cm round and is attached via a silver jump ring to an 18 inch, 925 sterling silver curb chain which fastens with a spring ring clasp and is quality marked 925.Each piece of Holaweg silver jewellery comes beautifully presented and ready to gift in a reusable, natural fibre fabric bag. You can see an example of this in the picture (please note, gift bag designs may vary slightly.)
So as to avoid another bit of single-use plastic going into landfill, where possible I will send your order in a neatly re-labled, re-used,clean padded envelope. But of course, please let me know if you'd prefer a new envelope instead and I will make sure that you get one.
