Fox Trot Pendant (2)
This one-of-a-kind pendant features a natural Fox Turquoise Gemstone. The stone has been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. With an oxidised background (blackened) the vibrance of this tiny stone shows to its full advantage. These are glowing blues with slight inclusions throughout the stones from the rocks they were mined in.. 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. Named for a popular dance in the roaring 20’s, I think these earrings would have been very much at home in that era.
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 30mm 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.
