CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my studio.
The design of this sterling silver pendant originates from a plant illumination of the Middle Ages. This kind of pattern is especially developed during the medieval period. It is especially the monks who used it to decorate illumination manuscript books, especially Bibles.
There are also many vegetable motifs (as in the case of our pendant), real or imaginary animals, letters or initials, figurative scenes... This is a very fine and precise work I wanted to recreate in this pendant.
The pendant illumination shows interlacing of fine engraving plant. I then sawed the following pendant around the grounds giving a parchment effect this jewel.
A plant pattern made of leaves, ivy and scrollwork decorates this lovely jewel.
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. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished. 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.
It is 6.5 x 1 cm.
