CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This pendant is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
This is a custom order made from other pufferfish pendant we have made. The only notable difference, the client has chosen ocean jasper as semi-precious stone for this pendant, in place of the old glass cabochon that we proposed.
Pufferfish or Takifugu, or simply fugu, is a fish that filled with water to inflate its body when it feels threatened. Hence, it’s other name blowfish.
It is known to produce a powerful poison that can cause severe poisoning, while being recognized as an exceptional dish, especially in Japan. In this country, only cooks with a special license given by the state can prepare it.
This blowfish is made of a multitude of tiny details that I sawed with a lot of patience in my sterling silver sheet. I soldered all these tiny bits to give a 3D effect and I also applied patina to strengthen the effect.
The eye of the fish is a ocean jasper cab that really gives the impression of being observed by this cute little animal.
This pendant is really one of a kind.
It is signed with my initials on the back.
