Stock Level: 1

Entirely hand sculpted solid silver pendant featuring a single open wild rose bloom.  The flower has been painstakingly created from individually formed components and sculpted into a unique pure solid silver pendant.

I created a template for each petal and individually cut and formed them into natural curves, bringing them together into a natural looking open bloom, complete with a detailed central section with detailed stigmas and anthers - each of which was hand rolled as a tiny ball and individually applied with tweezers.

The rose has been made in pure silver clay (a.k.a. PMC - precious metal clay) and represents many hours of detailed work under a magnifier with tweezers.  It hangs from a plain rounded loop on the back of the top petal, ensuring that you only see the flower itself in wear. 

The back and side views with the bail loop can be seen in the additional photographs.  The flower was formed on a base shaped like a natural rose calyx, to carry the authentic detail of the natural bloom to the back as well as the front.

The central section of the front has been lightly antiqued to enhance the details.

Size:

The wild rose pendant is around 32mm (1¼") in diameter.  It measures 8mm (0.3") in total depth, so it sits quite flat on the skin.  It is hung on a nice quality Sterling silver snake chain which is 1mm thick, please specify if you would prefer a 16" (406mm) or 18" (458mm) chain with the pendant in the comment box during checkout.

What is silver clay / PMC:

PMC / silver clay is a clay like medium made from tiny particles of pure fine silver, 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, or components to assemble the finished piece as in this case, it is thoroughly dried to remove all of the water, the shape is assembled and gradually further refined and then fired at very high temperature in a kiln to both burn off the binders and to cause the silver particles to fuse together as solid metal.


Please note that due to the value and unique nature of this item, it will be sent by 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.
