Sterling Silver Ellipse Dot Pendant
One-of-a-kind Silver Ellipse Dot Pendant in Shinbashiiro [New Bridge Cyan], randomly stippled with dots in Fukagawanezu [Mouse Grey]. According to the Essence of Colour in Japanese Design by Rossella Menegazzo, the colour Shinbashiiro became fashionable in early twentieth century Japan. I love it for its name, as to me building bridges between nations is fundamental to peace.
My Ellipse pieces are part of my First Exploration collection inspired by a quotation from a book by Carl Sagan called 'Pale Blue Dot'. The book was named after an image of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe from the edge of our Solar System before it crossed into interstellar space.
The pendant is handmade in recycled Sterling silver and eco-resin using techniques such as sawing, filing, forming, soldering and casting resin. Once both colours were cured, the resin was carefully sanded back and polished to a glossy finish.
The pendant, including bail, measures approximately 35x15mm and comes on an 18" (45cm) Sterling silver rolo chain.
The pendant will be shipped in a grey recycled-card gift box carefully packaged to ensure that it is not damaged in transit.
Ready to ship in 3-5 business days.
