Item 5087 - "Nature's Pod" Handcrafted, sculpted 999 Fine Silver with Turquoise, 925 Sterling Handcrafted chain, Sesame Jasper and Magnasite


Using PMC 999 Fine Silver (see below) I handcrafted, sculpted and carved this custom pendant. I created this by using cork clay to shape the mold of the pod then wrapped the sculpted 999 Fine silver around the pod. I fired this in the kiln at 1650 for 2 hours which burned away the cork clay then sintered and fused the fine silver in the shape of the pod.

I then used sterling silver wire to forge and form the links of the necklace and added genuine Turquoise, Sesame Jasper and Magnesite to complete the piece.

"What is PMC?" PMC (Precious Metal Clay) is a medium where they take solid metal, grind it to micro fine particles then add organic binder to it to give the medium "clay" like properties. PMC allows me to create pieces by sculpting, carving & texturing through the use of scalpels, wood carving tools, and anything that has a unique texture. This is similar to pottery only I am working with precious metals such as .999 Fine silver, 22K Gold, .925 Sterling Silver and base metals such as Copper & Bronze. Once I have finished sculpting the piece I then fire it in a Kiln at 1650 degrees for 2 hours which burns off the organic matter and returns the medium back to the solid metal. At this point I can treat it as the solid metal that it is by soldering, hammering, sawing or any techniques used with traditional sheet metal.

Gift wrapping and packaging

For holidays I am offering holiday themed gift wrapping for $2 with a hand written name tag or personal message. I can offer all holiday wrapping including Birthdays, Anniversary, Christmas, etc. Be sure to leave me a note for which holiday wrapping you desire if it is not for Christmas. At no additional charge I package all items in beautiful boxes with ribbons. Unless you wish to wrap with specific paper yourself, you can present the item in the original packaging as I also make sure there are no price tags on the item itself. These gift wrap options allow you to have the gift sent directly to the recipient.

Care instructions

You should never use liquid silver cleaner. LIQUID silver cleaner is very harsh and can harm the metal over time as well as remove any patinas that were put on the piece intentionally. Body oils, hairspray, perfume, makeup...just to name a few...can cause Sterling to tarnish so use mild soap and water to clean the piece after wearing. Everyone's body chemistry is different and some people can wear sterling for years without tarnishing it. I personally have high acid content so I can tarnish a chain around my neck in one day. The best way to remove tarnish is with a Moonshine Jewelry Polishing Cloth. I will be offering these for sale in the future.
