I spent my grade school years in beautiful Charlottesville, VA, and returned to attend college. My young adult years were spent in Middleburg and Purcellville~within view of the gorgeous mountains and verdant pastures. Though born elsewhere, I have always considered myself a Virginia girl, and the dogwood has been a favorite flower.
My love of the dogwood blossom continues to find its way into my art, and I have created a collection around this joyous flower.
Each blossom is hand-sawn out from a sheet of Argentium .925 sterling silver, forged and textured with my hammer, and the stamens are made of balled-up silver (made with my torch) and soldered on. I carefully curve the petals to give them depth. Each dogwood is unique!
Argentium is a proprietary sterling silver that is hyperallergenic and tarnish resistant.
The pendant is approximately 1" wide and 1-1/2" inches high. It has a enhancer bail that snaps open to fit over pearls, beads and chains.
Also available with patina.
