Silver pine cone necklace - Arborea Jewellery

Silver pine cone necklace

Regular price £50.00 Sale

A beautiful silver pine cone necklace, made using a real pine cone. The pine cone was used to create my own mold, which I then filled with recycled fine silver metal clay, when it was dry it was fired and soldered to a handmade bail made with recycled silver wire. It has been oxidised and I have only polished the tips so that you can see the textures and depth of the piece. The whole item is finished with a protective coating to prevent tarnish.

Pine cones are woody, spruce cones are thin and flexible and fir cones have tight upright cones. 
Pine cones have various meanings in different cultures, they symbolise eternal life (Paganism), they represent the sun (Egypt), symbolise fertility (Ancient Greece) and are used as a symbolic representation as the Third Eye (various). 

This pine cone pendant measures 3 cm (1.18") in length and 1.9 cm (0.75") at the widest point. It comes with an 18" recycled sterling silver trace chain. 

Every item is presented in a recycled pillow box with an anti-tarnish tab, and is posted safely in recyclable wrapping. If you would like to add a giftbox to your order it would make the perfect gift for those who love woodland jewellery or forest jewelry.
