Silver Feather Necklace
As talismans go, this one's pretty special. The hand crafted, sterling silver feather pendant began life as a lump of "clay" and a real white feather. I wanted a hefty piece, so I rolled the clay quite thick before imprinting it with the feather. You'll rarely see a contemporary silver piece of jewelry this thick ( 1/16"+) due to the rising costs of precious metals. Every fine line shows in gloriously real detail, highlighted by the dark patina I applied. The feather and jump ring bail are 2 1/2" long and are suspended on a darkly patinated 19" sterling silver chain with sterling lobster claw clasp.
