This Sterling Silver pendant is inspired by stormy days on the Cornish coast and finding beauty in amongst the 'grey.'
This pendant is formed of a disc of Sterling Silver that's been shaped in to a dome. The dome measures aprox 2.3cm (23mm) at it's widest/tallest point. The depth if the dome is aprox 0.7cm (7mm).
The inside of the dome has been treated with an oxidising treatment to blacken it, which has been lightly polished. The polishing process removes some of the colour and also gives it a sheen that changes the intensity of colour - depending on which direction you look at it, it looks various shades of grey and black, just like a stormy sky! Half of the concave dome is then textured again and small sections of the blackened, polished surface are hand engraved to reveal the silver - it's this that is representative of the ferocious sea.
The edge of the dome is flat, front facing and has been polished for contrast against the inside of the blackened dome. The necklace is presented on a trace style, Sterling Silver, chain (your choice of 16 or 18 inches) which attaches via a tubular style bail. The back of the dome and bale have both been finished with a brushed texture.
This unique design would make a great gift for anyone drawn to the coast and the sea, or who perhaps needs a little reminder that beauty can be found on the greyest of days...It complements so many looks and transitions perfectly from day to night!
This pendant forms part of a wider collection, with matching items available.
My mother loves the stormy Cornish seas. She spends her summers in England. She is aging and soon will not be able to enjoy her seaside accommodations. The disc necklace is meant to hold the memories for her. After hours of searching, I was down to the wire to find her the perfect gift, when I came across this special piece. Just like a stormy sea, the light reflecting from this piece makes it change. I knew it would be perfect. With just a few days to spare, Lucy not only created my item, but she got it to my mother in perfect time! My mother absolutely LOVED the creativity which was put into this pendant. She also enjoyed reading Lucy's inspiration behind the piece. It now holds very special memories for a very special lady.
