The antique Victorian, marked silver pendant sets the scene. A vigorous stag is leaping through the fields and woods. The etching and embossed deer are so detailed it clearly points to Victorian craftsmanship. Circa 1880, this pendant (1 ½ inches across, or 4 cm, and 1 ¼ inches high, or 3 cm) was once possibly a locket but certainly a brooch, now altered to a pendant.
And because of this scene, it brought to mind a crystal sharp day, with green moss and trees, and berries on the bushes for the deer to enjoy, as well as dark rocks to clamber over.
So there is a pattern of rough- cut peridot (16 mm), faceted crystal cylinders with moss inclusions (14.8mm x 19.8mm), jet cylinders (16 mm x 19 mm), and vibrant sponge coral cylinders, (13mm x 15 mm). And just to echo the silver pendant, I’ve added vintage, handmade silver on hardened resin beads from India.
I have used a silver toggle clasp made by the Karen hill tribes, of twisted silver to create a rope design. Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 18½ inches long, or 47 cm. with a 1½ inch pendant drop.
