Garden of bones

Garden of bones


price: Sold
6,5 cm x 2,3 cm


Very unusual , elegant pendant, made of sterling silver, full of amazing details, adorned with a spectacular specimen of fossilized coral, two cream moonstones and black onyxes. Every element of this sculptural piece was made by hand without using any moulds. All miniature flowers, skulls and bones were made using just a few simple sculpting and metalsmithing tools. Total length of this piece, including articulated bail is 6,5 cm. Its width in the widest place is 2,3 cm.

On one hand this pendant is a classical example of "memento mori" theme. On the other it speaks strongly about inherent entanglement of life and death. One always following the other in a huge, complex web of All That Exists. The beautiful, fossilized coral tells the same story - covered with flowers - so full of life, yet dead - turned into a stone.

The pendant is oxidized and satin finished, to showcase all the beautiful elements even better and to create contrast with cream and black coloured stones. Only a few details are brought to a subtle shine. The pendant comes with a strand of tiny black onyxes (42 cm long) and additional 9 cm of silver chain regulation. This piece is signed and marked with the year of creation (2021). It will be packed in a nice gift box. Certificate of uniqueness attached. If you have any questions, please, ask.

  My pendant „Lair of visions” was published in AMCAW calendar (Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide) for 2021.  This piece is made of sterling silver, milled sterling sheet, fine silver bezel wire, electroplated gold, three labradorites and two peridots. This pendant was hand sculpted using simple tools. No moulds. Every element was formed from scratch. It’s a combination of sculpting in wet clay, slip painting and dry contruction. Stone settings were soldered after firing. The bail was constructed from milled metal, combined with an ornamental element sculpted in metal clay - the elements were soldered together. This piece is a poetic reminiscence of my strolls and meditations in the forest. Forest and its gifts as a source of vision See more photos of this piece here.
