Hand hammered copper and silver married metals and turquoise hanging earrings. The texture of these earrings shimmer in the light. The warmth of copper and the coolness of silver combine to set off three small turquoise stones in each earring.
Reminds me of the sun and the moon – or the Red Rocks of Sedona at twilight – blue sky (almost turquoise and periwinkle), warm earth, cool air. One of my favorite places to be at dusk! Magical.
Entirely hand-fabricated (hand made). No two earrings are alike. 3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide. Silver wire. Signed “Matagi Sorensen” on the back of each earring.
Finally, a moon pendant made with an actual moonstone! This stone is milky white with some translucence – very moony. This pendant is hand-carved silver, so not only does the stone make it one-of-a-kind, but the silver itself is cut just for this particular piece.
This piece is a hollow form. Both the front and the back of the pendant have hand-carved “craters” in order to let light pass through. The chain runs through the middle of the pendant, giving it a more “grounded” appearance.
Size: 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter
1/3 inch thick
Silver Full Moon Lotus Seed Pendant Chain not included in the price This item was commissioned, similar items may be made to order.
This piece is a hollow form hand-carved disc. It is about the size of a nickel and a quarter inch thick. Instead of using a bell, the chain for this piece runs through the body of the pendant.
One side of the pendant has bevelled edges (craters) in the carvings to cause a rippled surface to refract light, and on the other side, the carvings are flat. This pendant may be worn to show the textured side or the flat side. The photos below show examples of both sides, as well as the thickness of the piece.
I can recreate this pendant to be any size – a larger design could be very dramatic. Of course, this one reminds me of the moon!
I decided to design a ring much like my curved bracelets. This ring is approximately half an inch wide and the carving gently catches the light. Like all my rings, the inside edge of the ring is bevelled for a comfortable fit.
