Teardrop Pendant

Teardrop Pendant

Brushed silver softly picks up light in this delicately rounded pendant. Silver is an element that is connected to the moon and intuition; the bowl shape at the bottom of tear drop represents unlimited potential; tears and water, subtle and powerful – all are very yin energies.

The bell at the top of the pendant gently curls upon itself.

This pendant is shown with the bowl shape opening outward, though it may also be worn with the bowl facing inward.

Approximately an inch long and half an inch wide.

Reticulated Silver Pendant

Reticulated Silver Pendant

The fun thing about reticulated silver is that, when creating the reticulation, you never know exactly what the results will be. The finished product is to an extent, chance.

The ripples on the surface of the pendant are like earth’s topography — it looks like mountains and rivers and valleys from far above the earth.

This is a hollow form pendant. The necklace runs through the piece. It’s about 2 1/2 inches long, about a half inch wide, and about 1/4 inch deep. Entirely hand-crafted and signed on the back.

Pinky Shiva

Pinky Shiva

A variation on Shiva’s Flame, this is a pinky ring, or for a very small finger. It rises like a small flame from the finger.

Very comfortable, beveled on the inside and flat on the sides, it’s almost as if you’re not wearing a ring at all.

Hand-carved. Sterling Silver.
