This necklace is built by hand from an incredible specimen of Malachite. The stone is cut from a stalactite form, cut horizontally through the formation to reveal markings that remind me of growth rings on a tree. The stone is set in a simply in silver, with long tendrils of chain dangling down, and various leaf shapes at the ends.
This piece was designed for movement and music, the chains dance around as you go about your business, the silver bits jingling together making soft music. The silver has been given a darkened oxidized patina, bringing out the textural details and highlighting the color of the stone.
Chain length 21.5", the stone measures 1.5" across and 1" long, the chain dangles are 8.5" long and the total length of the pendant is just over 9.25".
