A pendant to honor the instincts that women release into as they birth their babies. This is a mama catching her own baby under the full moon.
The piece is approximately 1 and 1/8 inches in diameter. It is fine silver (.999) and hangs on a sterling silver chain. The mama and the moon are slightly raised polished silver, while the background has earthy orange, red, and purple tones. I create this colourful patina with a technique using liver of sulfur and flash heating under hot water. The colors develop rapidly, on their own. It is a process of letting go and allowing the piece to come into its own.
I make all my jewelry to order in my studio in Vermont and handcraft each piece with care. As such, the piece you receive may have minimal variations from the photo pictured. For me, this is part of the beauty of the craft- no two pieces are exactly the same, and each has their own special energy. This is especially true when I work with pieces with color- each piece will have its own unique hues.
A note about chains - you can choose between two types of chains: a sterling silver snake chain and a sterling silver rolo chain. The snake chain is beautiful but delicate and for some people it can break. There is nothing wrong with it, that is just how that chain works. If it does break, I am happy to sell you a replacement, just email me. The rolo chain is sturdier because of the types of links. I like to give you the option so that you can choose what works best for you.
When I receive your order, I will begin to make your piece. It takes me approximately 10 days to make and ship each piece. If you need a piece sooner, rush service may be available. Please contact me directly.
