An intricately weaved tarnish resistant silver plated copper pendant with accents of purple and hematite. With a raw amethyst central stone.
An absolutely unique design, available in my FOLKSY shop. It is a one of it’s kind in the world; so if you are looking to stand out from the crowd, this is a perfect gift either to yourself or a loved one.
Took this picture of a Budda statues during one of the countryside walks in one of the natural heritage sites in the UK. During the 1800 I guess having a statue on your land was seen as exotic as part of your “oriental garden”. Today the symbolism is different.
The original picture is in colour and a woodland background. The main subject was isolated and changed to black and white. If you wish to own a copy you can do so from my Redbubble shop
Etsy as a shopping platform has been promoting the idea of free shipping to the US. I had a think of this concept and decided to join in as well. As we are talking a very strange 2020 – I thought I offer my shoppers that privilege.
Christmas shopping will be starting in earnest soon; so thought I offer my shoppers that little bit extra help.
What does this mean you say?
Basically my higher priced items come with free US shipping the rest of the items need to make the $35 dollar mark before they qualify for the free shipping. -THIS OFFER HAS ENDED
However if you do buy multiple items and if fits within the weight limit then shipping costs will be lower as you only pay for the main shipping cost which is £12.68 and any purther item postage will only be £2 extra, rather than the full price of shipping once again. So bundling in multiple items saves on shipping costs.
What about the UK?
My price ranges have been optimized across all items and tried to keep prices fair across the board. UK CUSTOMERS GET FREE SHIPPING – in the run up for Chritsmas.
Do get in touch and we can have a chat about things.
Shop will be taking a break from the 15th December, until January 2018, when it will reopen. Hopefully I will have some new pieces added to the collection.
A short holiday, is always a wonderful time to recharge.
Continue to shop local, continue to support local artists, if not through buying then through promoting your local shops though blogs; liking the artist pages. Let’s support creativity; imagination and diversity.
These beautiful pendants are recycling botryolite gem stones into individual pieces. All pendants are wire wrapped by hand using tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire; or tarnish resistant red copper wire. Some designs are simple; just the bortyolite and wire but some are incorporating other gem stones; beads or sea glass.
Below is the collection incorporating these pendants:
The stone itself was the inspiration for this piece; the webbing and detail allows for the stone to be center stage. It is bold and delicate at the same time.
The design was a fluent inspirational work; often when I pick up a stone it is impossible to know what the end piece will look like. it may mean that it will start off as a simple design and it evolves along the way. Sometimes I create something then just to cut it all up and start again. Often something that starts off as simple; requires additional twists and turns for the final piece to emerge.
Wire wrapping makes each piece individual; I do not use templates to create the pieces; they evolve organically through the process of wrapping. Each piece takes a number of hours to complete; whilst each wrap is done by hand..
Lapis lazuli has always been a precious commodity. In the time of Leonardo DaVinci; Michelangelo and decades previous the color blue was obtained by crushing the stone and turning it into a vibrant color. If you were able to have blue in your painting back in those days it meant you were rich. Or as one musician said at one point “rich beyond your wildest dreams”.
The elegance of this pendant reminds me of those days long gone; when elegance was the word of the day; you can buy it on Folksy.
This intricate pendant is made from tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire.
The stone is a labradorite gem stone playing in hues of green blue and grey.
The labradorite gem stone is 2.5 cm; whilst the full pendant is 7 cm in height.
The elegant pendant would work perfectly as part of an evening attire; though given its classical look – can also match any elegant office look.
Any of my pieces can be worn both as part of a relaxed day time as well as a more formal ensemble.
(A pendant of this dimension and intricacy take several hours to complete; the stone is recycled from another chain go labradorites; and may have minor imperfections; the design evolved organically as I tried to encapsulate the stone; therefore this pendant is unique and will not be able to be reproduced in the same manner; as the stone will be different and the wrapping will also differ. If you wish to own it; you can be sure that it will be one of a kind)

**A NOTE: Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and it will retain it’s shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket. :)
**Note: though all silver plated pieces are made from tarnish resistant wire; it may age; as most metals do. Mild soap and water shouldn’t damage the finish, however I do recommend removing your jewelry before showering or bathing; using household cleaners, chemicals, or essential oils; doing manual jobs like gardening or washing dishes; and applying lotions. Do not use jewelry cleaners on this jewelry. Sometimes the plating can wear off with excessive use – therefore I recommend not wearing the pieces every day. Rotating your beautiful jewelry pieces creates a new look for you; and changes your mood for that day.
The pendant shape was directed by stone. As in most of my items design comes second. The shape of the stone and the mood on the day creates the style the embellishment and the final look of the item. The creative element comes in at every stage of the piece development; this intricate design is unique and I will not be able to reproduce it.
This particular pendant took me approximately 7 hours to complete involving a number of meters of wiring. The final item resembling a flower with a purple heart; in fact the amethyst itself resembles the shape of a human heart.
This piece would be an amazing gift with a meaning.
This piece came about whilst trying to re-produce a drawing of mine.In fairness the drawing would lend itself perfectly to a soldered piece and as I have not learned that technique i tried to reproduce it in wire.
The pendant has 5 overlapping layers; each weaved on its own and then attached one on top of the other. It is build up to have a three dimensional feel to it. The core has an Obsidian black shard suspended on wire.
it is indeed a statement piece at 6 cm X 5 cm it hangs well on a longer chain; and can compliment any day time or evening attire.
It is unique as the same patterns will not be able to be reproduced; even if i tried to create it again the shape the size the webb will be different; just as our lives is different from one day to the next
Made from silver plated copper wire and spherical off-white fresh pearls.
The pendant is 5.8 cm or 2.5 inches; the earrings are 2.5 cm or 1.1 inches.
Included in the set is also a silver plated chain at no extra cost. The set comes in a pink organza bag for storage at no extra cost.
The inspiration for this set of jewelry came from the seaside; especially as it contains fresh water pearls. It resembles a net that has just caught the morning fish. Will compliment a stylish dress for the evening.

The healing properties:
As spiritual tokens, pearls are said to assist in calming and centering, as well as nurture your faith, loyalty, integrity and purity. hey are also strong symbols of femininity, helping women connect with their “inner goddesses” and obtain the ultimate “feminine energy.”
This set is made from genuine turquoise stones and pink glass beads. The wire used is non-tarnish silver plated copper wire.
The inspiration for this set comes from a genuine Roman necklace made in the 2nd century BC which I have seen in the Art Museum in Vienna. The classic style of this piece will set-off a classic dress really well.
The set will come in a pink organza bag for storage.
