CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of 925 fine silver made by hand in my workshop.
This sterling silver oval pendant is a hymn to nature and abundance, through the staging and value of this peach aventurine. It reminds me the sun, heat, gold, wheat fields, peaches... all the abundance that nature offers us.
An embossed disc is engraved with an ear of wheat. It symbolizes the sun allows nature to grow, especially wheat to mature and take its beautiful golden color. This hemisphere is surmounted with scrolls filigree that forms like a sheaf of wheat or a plant bouquet. These scrolls seem to support this sun.
This oval sterling silver pendant ends with a beautiful peach aventurine that illuminates its soft color, all of this jewel and its symbol. This semi-precious stone is set gently with small thin claws.
This pendant is named "Amalthée", Amalthea in French and refers to the cornucopia of Greek mythology. The different patterns and color of this pendant reminds me the abundance of nature. In older versions, Amalthea was a goat that suckled and cared Zeus during his childhood. She would be at the origin of the cornucopia. In newer versions, Amalthea was a nymph whom Rhea entrusted Zeus after birth to escape the jealousy of Cronos. She took care of him and fed him with goat’s milk (commonly used at the time to replace mother breast milk). By accident, she broke one of the horns of the goat she surrounded it with fresh grass and filled with fruit presented it to Zeus lips. Thus was born the cornucopia.
This pendant measures about 6 x 1.5 cm large (2.362 x 0.591 inches).
The sole pendant is sold.
Raw, oxidized and polished to brighten the details.
