Part of the Lichen Loops fine jewellery collection, this pendant is inspired by the beautiful forms of lichen and the rustic process of hand-modelling.
The pendant design was first handcrafted from wax and then cast in solid sterling silver.
The resulting pieces contain subtle marks and fingerprints from the hands-on making techniques and celebrate the beauty of imperfection and unique quality of handmade objects.
This pendant has been partially oxidised to highlight the lichen-like cup forms and it is hung on a 20 inch oxidised sterling silver chain with hallmarked maker's 'SS' tag.
Dimensions of pendant: Approx 16mm x 12mm
Mini Cupped Lichen Loop Necklace
Please be aware that the dark oxidised finish is not permanent and it may wear away on the edges to expose the polished silver underneath. But in my opinion, this just adds to the rustic character.
