Dendritic Lace Pendant (2)
This one-of-a-kind pendant features one of my favourite stones – Dendritic Agate. This stone has an amazing naturally occurring landscape/ tree silhouette – completely unique and a little hand forged freely hanging diamond element at the base. The stone has been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. With an oxidised background (blackened) this beautiful little stone looks like a tiny painting. 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 one is a stand out from this collection.
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 46mm high X 23mm 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.
The word ‘dendrite’ comes from the Greek Word ‘dendron’ meaning ‘tree.’ Dendritic Agate or Quartz is created when the stone fractures and water and minerals seep into the rock and fossilise, the end result over hundreds of thousands of years is a beautiful section of quartz with a highly filigreed mineral dendritic landscape locked inside. Dendrites are fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, or other metallic oxides that create bold patterns within the gem. The internal dendrites may appear black, dark grey, brown or green and, in rare instances, even red.
Healing Properties – Often called the ‘Stone of Plenitude’, Dendritic Agate is associated with abundance, prosperity and growth – not just monetary, but in every aspect of ones life. It can enhance self confidence and perseverance, as well as transform negative energies (both in the environment and the body) into positive energies.
Made with lots of love, care, heart and soul.
