From my Trellis Collection*, this piece is hand built...each petal, vine and leaf is hand-made in tiny detail by hand in fine silver metal clay. The reverse has the pattern I found in an antique book, then etched onto an etched copper plate that I use to texture the precious metal clay (PMC). Each piece in this collection is one of a kind.
The amethyst has a gorgeous sparkly light purple color, and is 1.37 carats in a faceted pear shape set in a prong setting. The bottom flower is accented with 14k gold stamens in the middle.
The back of the piece is signed E. Hay, and has cut outs to create a lovely positive/negative trellis effect behind the blossoms, leaves and vines.The pendant measures approximately 2-1/4" by 1-3/16".
Made entirely from fine silver with a sterling bail, this is a one of kind piece. Shown with a 1.5mm wheat chain that I have oxidized.
*My Trellis Collection is a very limited collection of hand built, miniature garden designs. Each piece takes many, many hours to create, as each petal is made separately, then carefully joined by PMC slip. The flowers range from 1/8" to 1/4" in diameter. The Trellis Collection was created after I took a class with Saul Bell Award Winner, Polish jewelry artist Anna Mazon. The Saul Bell Award is the jewelry community's version of the Emmy's, recognizing the best, brightest, and also most innovative. It was an amazing class with an incredibly talented and innovative artist!
