Fine silver filigree heart pendant filled with leaves and scrolls


Product Code: 26126f

Stock Level: 1

A delicate filigree fine silver heart shaped pendant filled with curls and leaves and buds and a single Padparadscha coloured cubic zirconia (CZ) stone nestled amongst the coils.

The heart pendant hangs on the included Sterling silver snake chain from a looped coil of silver atop the heart, reinforced with tiny balls of solid silver.  It has been antiqued to enhance the textures and details.    Padparadscha is the colour of rare and beautiful sapphires from Sri Lanka and the word is derived from the name of a lotus blossom flower of this colour.

Fine silver is even purer than Sterling silver at 99.9% purity and the pendant has been entirely hand crafted by me, with every tiny leaf, ball and coil formed with my fingers and fixed in place with tweezers - painstaking delicate work under a magnifier, taking several hours.

The pendant hangs 34mm (1.35") below the chain and is 26mm (1") at its widest in wear.    Please check the sizes against a ruler as it is quite small and delicate and much smaller than the photographs might suggest when seen larger on-screen.

The pendant will be supplied on a Sterling silver snake chain, as shown in the photographs, in either 16" (406mm) or 18" (457mm) - Please specify your preference in the comments box during checkout. 

What is precious metal clay?

Precious metal clay PMC) is a clay like medium made from tiny particles of silver (other metals are available too, I also work in copper and bronze), combined with an organic binder and made into a pliable clay or paste with water. After working with the clay-like medium to form the article, it is thoroughly dried to remove all of the water, the shape is then further refined and then fired at very high temperature to both burn off the binders and to cause the pure silver particles to fuse together as solid metal.  

It is a fascinating form of alchemy which allows results not easily achieved by conventional metalsmithing techniques and a delicate level of detail as in this case. Once fired in a very hot kiln, the result is pure solid metal - in this case, Fine Silver.

Please note that due to the value and unique nature of this item, it will be posted Special Delivery within the UK (which will require signature on delivery) or by Airsure International Airmail where the service is available.  There is no additional charge for this, it is my preference to send it in this manner.
