Tiny Silver Dot Pendant in Shinbashiiro
This Tiny Silver Dot Pendant was 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. On board the space probe is a golden record with peace greetings to the Universe in 55 different languages, including whale song. Each little dot essentially conveys a message of peace across space and time.
All Tiny Dot Pendants are handmade in recycled Sterling silver and eco-resin. The original pendant was filled with resin hand-mixed to match the colour of Earth as seen from space.
For this pendant I chose Shinbashiiro [New Bridge Cyan]. According to the Essence of Colour in Japanese Design by Rossella Menegazzo, the colour became fashionable in the early twentieth century. I love it for its name, as to me building bridges between nations is fundamental to peace.
The pendant measures 6mm in diameter and comes with a Sterling silver mini snake chain with lobster clasp in a choice of lengths.
