A handcrafted one of a kind pendant set with a beautiul forest-like 44.08ct dendritic opal embraced with 14 karat yellow gold claws, the warming glow of pure (24kt) gold fused to sterling silver through the process of Keum Boo can be seen through the opal. The opal is draped in sterling silver vines and blossoms with 14kt yellow gold buds. The pendant is suspended from a handcrafted chain of sterling silver and 14kt yellow gold and secured with a toggle clasp.
Connecting with nature is knows to have positive effects on out mental and physical health During lockdowns escaping when we could to explore parks and follow hidden and often muddy paths through forests and being with nature has continued to be of inspiration and hope when days felt bleak and is the inspiration behind this pendant 'Lost in Nature'.
Being outdoors with nature has allowed us the space to breathe and reflect and escape the cramped up space of our homes. We felt grateful to listen to the bird song, observe the delicate buds on trees blossom and fall and teh sun set through the trees and rise again on a new day brinigng us hope of our world returning to normal albeit slightly changed.
