Natural Beauty…


Living in the country surrounded by prairie and forest, I can’t help but be inspired by nature!  I’ve just finished a piece that reminds me of our forest during a Midwestern  autumn.  This pendant is hollow-formed of textured sterling silver embellished with six silver orbs on the top surface and a midsection composed of 5mm (1/4″) hammer-textured bronze sheet followed with a bottom plate of sterling silver.  The focal area is filled with a resin faux moss green crystal that rises from a bed of glass shards, mica, and glitter in colors reminiscent of a bed of dried leaves and forest debris in October.  A small oval bloodstone cabochon dangles from the bottom of the hollow-form.  Measuring 35mm x 9cm in length, the pendant sways from a cast sterling silver twig and cable chain.  Planned for versatility, the top loop of the pendant is large enough to allow sliding it off the twig and chain and placing it on a neckring…I like versatility!  The oxidized finish adds to the rustic feel of this necklace.
