Japanese Waves Crest Silver Pendant Saw Pierced Sterling Necklace

$85.00

Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.  (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

The Story of This Jewelry: As a child, I spent three years in Japan and maybe it impressed something upon my subconscious because I am quite drawn to Japanese design aesthetics.  For this piece, I took a book of old Japanese family crests and designed a pendant based on one depicting cresting waves.

I created this unique pendant using a technique called "saw pierce" where I cut away the negative space in the design I drew on a piece of sterling silver sheet.

For contrast, I've soldered the sterling disk onto a copper disk to which I've added a patina.

The pendant diameter is 1 and 1/8th inches (~28mm) and comes with a sterling silver chain (select your length).
