Tear-shaped Coral and Silver Shadowbox Pendant

Coral Hollow Tear 1Tear-shaped Coral and Silver Shadowbox Pendant

Brushed silver carries red coral punctuated by the deep black in the shadowbox. The cut out at the top of the pendant flows with the overall shape of the tear and the coral. Holes in the side of the pendant allow the necklace to be seen through the front. 

Coral and silver are a classic southwestern combination of materials, shown here with a new twist.

Entirely hand-crafted, this pendant is approximately a two inches long by an inch-and-a-half wide and a quarter inch deep. The coral is one-of-a-kind, as is the entire piece. Shown with a sixteen-inch silver omega necklace (separate from the pendant). Hand-signed on the back.

The inner part of the Trinity is a shadowbox pendant with a rounded brushed copper top with a pearl nestled in its opening. Both the pearl and the copper have a sheen that almost glows.

A lovely standout piece on it’s own.  The combination of copper, silver and pearl is captivating. As the copper matures, its color will deepen and shift as it responds to its environment.

A truly organic piece.

The copper inner shadowbox pendant is 1/2 inch wide and 1 1/4 inches long, and fits inside of the silver outer pendant. Both are about 1/4 inch deep.  Shown with a 7-strand 16″ silver omega necklace.
