CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop and a beautiful imperial jasper and a peridot cabochon.
I designed this pendant around this imperial jasper, which remains one of my favorite semi-precious stone families. It is mainly green-khaki-colored and composed of concentric circles offering pale tones up to brown-green.
It reminds me of an oval flowerbed which together perfectly naturally harmonizes. Meet such an organization in a mineral always fascinates me and suggest me all the time that everything in its place in this world. With a little work, freeing sometimes unnecessary questioning, we can integrate harmoniously in this natural and peaceful world.
This is what I wanted to do with this pendant, integrate my work, my knowledge, has this vegetable parterre, and together creates a real garden.
Therefore, I set this imperial jasper on a sterling silver sheet cut irregularly, with claws to free up this stone. Then in the lower part, I welded small leaves in sterling silver and brass. These two colors can play on the difference in tone, gold and silver, which combines and harmonizes naturally. I have also affixed circles, symbol of continuity and harmony. Finally, I set a peridot green color, which harmonizes in turn with the imperial jasper.
This work reminded me of a famous quote of Voltaire drawn from Candide or optimism:
"We must cultivate our garden"
Quote I therefore engraved on the back of this pendant in French and gives "Il faut cultiver notre jardin". She mentioned in particular the fact of leaving the metaphysical problems to take care of what we can change and improve in order to find happiness. In short, it is better to take care of our daily lives than brooding incomprehensible subjects.
This pendant measures about 4 x 1.9 cm.
The total length of the necklace is 43cm.
This necklace will be perfect for a person who likes unique jewels, romantic style and rustic finish at the same time. It will look good on a beautiful neckline.
