If you are a mountain lover, you know why I made this piece. The back is inscribed with the words, "go where you feel most alive". It's supposed to transport you to a dreamy place like this that you know or want to know. So peaceful & serene.
This evening winter wonderland scene was inspired by the beautiful sparkling White Agate Druzy that looks just like snow set at the base of the mountains. It's so sparkly just like when light hits snow! The texture looks so fluffy and pretty like the fresh untouched snow you find in the mountains. When I look at this piece it makes me imagine the quiet of an evening in nature in the snow looking up at the stars. We don't get snow every year here in Seattle, WA but when I was putting the last touches on this piece it started to snow!
There are a lot of special details I included that I want to make sure the wearer knows about!
Underneath the snow (White Agate Druzy) I soldered a little soldered heart to symbolize how much love and thought went into making this piece. It's my way of sending a little extra love with whomever wears it where ever they may go.
There are two birds flying in the night sky on the front.
The back has one bird cut out to show the agate through it. You can see it glow white when you hold it up to the light.
The sparkly Cubic Zirconia also shows through a cut out on the back. That helps it sparkle more in the front but also adds to the special hidden seen on the back as well!
The sterling silver wass hand painted with patina to turn it dark. I tried to give it the effect of having some clouds not all the way pitch black.
The mountains were hand textured with an antique hammer that I found in one of my favorite thrift shops. I roughed up the face of it a bit to add a rustic natural texture.
The chain measures 25" If you would like the length adjusted just let me know!
It has a handmade hook clasp closure
The pendant measures 1.4"W X 1.7"L
The entire piece is made of sterling silver. Except 14K Gold Fill prongs, a Cubic Zirconia moon and along with the hook clasp in the back there is a little dangling crystal bead rondelle
