This beautiful statement pendant is part of a small and exclusive, limited edition collection of one of a kind, unique pieces of jewellery. Inspired by the delicate and strong skeleton Hydrangea petals that I collected from my very own corner of Cornwall. Each flower or petal has been used only once, giving each piece a completely unique DNA, much like a fingerprint. The process of embossing that into the metal is delicate and precarious, but I hope you agree the results are just so, so special!
The flower petal shape and detail has been pressed in to Sterling Silver, the outline then carefully cut round to give a beautiful realism to the unique piece. It's an irregular shape, but at its tallest and widest points measures 30x31mm (3.0 x 3.1 cm). The reverse of the pendant is finished with matt texture and carries a full UK hallmark, including my own makers mark.
A second pendant is part of this design, so that they can be worn together as a charm style necklace or separately. A one of a kind gemstone from my own personal collection has been selected to reflect the colour of the Hydrangea bushes in full bloom in my garden and those same blooms eventually became these skeleton petals. A pale blue tourmaline has been set in a bezel style setting with an open back to allow the light through to further illuminate the beautiful blue stone that has delicate inclusions and variations in colour. The outside of the setting has a delicate, rustic textured pattern that also reflects the lights beautifully. The tourmaline in it's setting measures aprox 14x9mm at it's tallest and widest point. Since ancient times tourmaline is thought to have magic powers and is known as the gemstone of love and friendship, it's also an alternative birthstone for October.
Both the petal and Tourmaline pendants are presented on a Belcher style chain and attach via a hoop style bail. The length of chain is yours to choose - this piece works equally as well on a maxi long chain as it does a shorter length.
This is a beautiful statement pendant that would make a wonderful gift for a lover of nature and all things botanical. A way to remember a special beauty and strength that comes through adversity. The perfect way to finish off a special outfit or let someone know just how much they mean!
