CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my workshop.
It consists of a thin chain doubled in very delicate silver and a brass pendant engraved with an oriental motif.
In the center, a silver disc was welded to give relief to this magnificent piece contrasting with the golden color of brass.
The pattern engraved on the brass is formed by a set of elegant and air scrolls. The pattern is formed of a set of small squares following each other, giving the impression of a mosaic pattern. Detailing this pattern, we could see a succession of stylized Celtic Triskelion.
I chose to name this disk Nayana that means eye in Hindi. This is indeed what evokes for me that wide pendant. We can see a stylized eye in Indian style. This oriental motif is raised by this hemisphere silver, appearing as the closed eye of a Hindu god.
This could be for example the third eye of Shiva who represents wisdom. It’s always keeps closed as symbolizing fire, it destroys everything it looks.
This necklace measures 46 cm long.
The pendant diameter is 4.5 cm.
It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
