One of A Kind Handcrafted Pendant - 1" x .75" on 18" chain

Many people, including myself, found the outdoors and nature a welcoming place during the last 2 years. The "trail" pendant is the hike up the mountain we have all taken. The outdoors was safe and accessible to all. Hiking brought us out to where there was no pandemic and allowed us to be ourselves again without fear of the unknown. The sapphire represents the sunshine we found outdoors. There is a sign in my studio that says "don't just sit there, take a hike." This pendant says the same.

 

Artist Statement:

I have been making jewelry for close to 50 years and still love the work. I am joined by my son Sam who works with me now. We use lost wax casting and hand fabrication set with fine precious and semi precious gemstones. We work in sterling silver and karat gold.
