This sterling silver pear pendant is crafted using reclaimed metals. The image is the original illustration. Artwork is then created, a stamp is made, the piece is then stamped, stones set, cut, sanded, fired and finished using a non-toxic pickling solution. It measures 3/4" long by 1/2" wide and hangs from a delicate silver chain. The back of the pendant is stamped with the latin word for pear: Pira. The pendant can be personalized with a birthstone as shown here, and a name can be stamped in the back if desired. It can be made in a variety of metals and chain lengths range from 14-22". Priced from $38-80, depending on metal selection, the sterling silver pendant retails for $64.
I have an affinity for all things handmade and particularly appreciate handcrafted jewelry. Chocolate and Steel's creations are made from recycled fine silver that has been reclaimed from film negative and old circuitry, bronze from old boat propellers, bells and machine parts and sterling silver cultivated from old jewelry that has been sent to refineries.
