Hornets' nest, Silver
7,8 cm


Unusual pendant, made of unusual materials. I combined hand formed, pierced and soldered silver with a piece of specially treated... hornets' nest. Hornets and wasps make beautiful "paper" nests, with subtle stripes in all shades of brown, beige and sometimes even muted green and red (depending on what kind of plants they use to make their building material). Amazing wonder of Nature. Hornets' nests in their natural state are rather delicate and brittle, but I managed to develop a technique of making them relatively hard and slightly elastic, while still retaining wonderful, natural look and texture on the outer side.

Using silver and this tunnel-like piece of hornets' nest I constructed this interesting, three dimensional pendant. It's additionally adorned with two Baltic ambers ( 8 and 3 mm). I oxidized silver, and left it mat and black, highligting only ridges of the weird organic form, emerging from the nest...

Total leght of this pendant is 7,8 cm, including articulated bail with amber. It was made for Prezentacje competition and travelled for 2 years with post-competition exhibition.
It will be packed in a nice box. Certificate of uniqueness is included.
