Charleston Dancer Pendant
This one-of-a-kind pendant features a very deep dark green piece of Hubei Turquoise. It has dark webbing of inclusions of the rock it was mined from. Im such a sucker for deep greens and this is one of the best stones I have come across, it is incredibly earthy. The stone has been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. It has a separate hanging triangular element below the pendant that swings as well as a secret hand-sawn tree silhouette on the reverse. The design was inspired by my enduring love of elegant Art Deco’s sleek geometric forms combined with some Art Nouveau long sinuous organic lines all combined with a little romance.
This piece was incredibly enjoyable to create. Layering, hand-stamping, sawing, texturing, soldering, and polishing are just some of the steps taken to bring it to life. Each process done with care and accuracy to create a wearable work that will last a lifetime.
Dimensions – This pendant measures approximately 47mm high X 14mm wide (at its highest and widest points) Created entirely from reclaimed and recycled Sterling Silver, The Gauge (thickness) of the backing silver is 1.2mm making the piece strong and durable.
A blue-to-green gemstone Turquoise is coloured by traces of copper. Turquoise forms best in an arid climate, and that determines the geography of turquoise sources. Most of the world’s turquoise rough is currently produced in the southwestern United States, China, Chile, Egypt, Iran, and Mexico.
Turquoise meaning has been associated with personal protection, making it a popular protective shield for ancient warriors heading out into battle. The bright and stunning hue of the Turquoise crystal has been discovered in the ceremonial masks and battle gear of the Aztecs, a tribe that revered this decorative stone for its ability to provide personal protection against negative forces.
Healing Properties – Turquoise enhances serenity, empathy, positive thinking, and sensitivity to ancient wisdom. It opens up the connections between friends and allowing love to flow in those communications, which strengthens the friendship bond. Turquoise is a purification stone. It is also said to aid in the absorption of nutrients, enhancing the immune system, stimulating the regeneration of tissue, and healing of the whole body.
Made with lots of love, care, heart and soul.
