Amanita garnet & recycled silver fairy toadstool pendant
Amanita muscaria (otherwise known as fly agaric) is the classic image of a magical fairy toadstool, and is valued in Norse shamanic practices due to its psychoactive properties. The garnet, which echoes the amanita's rich red colour, is also reputed to both enhance creative energy and help ground you. Use this earthy little pendant as a talisman for creative growth and to remind you of the magic in this world.
The pendant :
- measures approximately 2.5cm x 1.5 cm
- is made from fine & sterling silver and a 5mm garnet cabochon
- hangs from an 18 inch, 925 sterling silver curb chain which fastens with a spring ring clasp. The chain can be substituted for a long black silken cord - just let me know at checkout.
- you will receive either one of the two pendants shown in the pictures
The gently hammered, fine silver pendant features a fairy toadstool, hand stamped with little circles and crescents, set with a garnet cabochon and detailed with a dark oxidising patina. The pendant has been carefully formed from precious metal clay, a material which offers a more eco-friendly alternative to mined silver as it uses reclaimed silver. The connecting jump rings are made from sterling silver.
Each piece of Holaweg silver jewellery comes beautifully presented and ready to gift. So as to avoid another bit of single-use plastic going into landfill, where possible I will send your order in a neatly re-labelled, 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.
Care - Silver naturally tarnishes and care should be taken to avoid contact with liquids and perfumes. This piece is best cared for by gently polishing with a polishing cloth such as the one you'll find included with your order, being careful not to press too deeply into the indentations so as to preserve the dark oxidised detailing!
