Garden Sparrow - bird lovers necklace in silver
Timeless, elegant, and weathered. This beautiful little song bird is sure to please.
This sweet little pendant features a lovely little bird, surrounded by beautiful leaves and a delicate blossom.
The edges of this piece are intentionally "rough" to create the weathered look that I love. If you would prefer clean edges, just let me know!
Each piece is handmade from fine silver, and hangs from an 18 inch sterling silver box chain.
Not familiar with fine silver? Here are the facts:
Fine silver has a higher silver content than sterling silver.
Fine silver is more valuable than sterling.
Due to being 99.9% pure silver, these pieces will not tarnish nearly as quickly as sterling.
This pendant was formed from a mold of an antique button. It was fired in my studio kiln at over 1500 degrees before being filed, polished, patinated, and polished again. I have hand finished this piece by leaving an antiqued finish on the lower spots, and spot polishing the highlights. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece with gorgeous dimension.
A perfect gift for someone special in your life! And don't worry - gifts for yourself are well deserved too!
Don't forget to add a polishing cloth to keep your treasure perfect. I recommend only lightly buffing the raised portions of your pendant, as to not disturb the intentional lowlights.
