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

Trinity – Part 3
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.
