Purple Drop Pendant
One of the principals that I hold myself to in my creation process is to minimise and reduce waste wherever possible. I delight in bringing new life to items that are overlooked or would otherwise end up in landfill, adore searching through op-shops for pieces that can be transformed, and dismantling second-hand pieces. Each piece has a story, a history of the hands it has passed through in order to get to me. My favourite target for this 'glow-up' transformation has been decorative and collectible spoons. Yes, the same spoons your Nanna has gathering dust on that wooden hanger, and the same ones you have buried under everything else in the cuterly drawer!
Each transformation is different, as there are so many different designs! This particular pendant has been lovingly selected due to it's delightful shape and charming little flourishes - it looks akin to a miniature grandfather clock to me. A hand-cut brass plate has been mounted front and centre (and can be engraved at your leisure, though I can not provide that service presently) and a freshwater pearl and purple crystal drop has been added on a sterling silver pin to match the rest of the piece. The chain has likewise been given a new life! The back of the piece still has the original maker's design, which I feel adds a certain charm to the piece.
The chain included has a 20cm drop and the pendant itself is a little over 4cm long. The chain and the pendant weigh just over 10 grams all up.
Due to the nature of this piece, the metals are unknown, save for the additions I have personally made.
