Crushed 9ct Yellow Gold Pendant with Chain
This pendant was made by melting gold into a bead, then crushing it. The front face has a mirror finish polish to highlight the beautiful rich colour of the gold, whereas the edges are rougher and more organic.
No two are ever the same; their form is determined by the process in which they are made, which makes these pendants extra special.
Approximately 8mm wide and 12mm long including the top loop.
(Please note these pendants are not perfectly round).
Simplistic trace chain with bolt ring fastening.
Choose "fine" or "medium" weight. (The chain in the photo is a medium).
Choose 16", 18 or 20" chain length. If you require longer, please message me for a quote.
The pendant is fixed by a loop that runs freely along the chain and does not come off the chain.
The Molten collection explores going back to the basics of jewellery making in the form of metal manipulation.
Gold, silver and gemstones have adorned us for thousands of years and as technology is evolving rapidly around us and fashions are forever changing, I found myself wanting to keep things simple and celebrate these materials in a more natural and organic way by using more primitive tools and processes such as a flame and hammer.
Molten is the state in which metal goes to when heated at extremely high temperatures. It acquires an almost liquid-like form which cools rapidly when the heat is taken away. All the designs in the molten collection are a reflection of this initial process, bringing the metal back to its rawer form.
All my designs arrive in a box ready to gift if you wish.
Care instructions are given so you know exactly how to look after your new piece of precious jewellery.
