:: Deep Time Amulet ::

This primitive silver, slightly offset pendant has a phenomenal two-sided stone and is reversible.  The front is a pyritized fossil ammonite from Russia that has an amazingly graphic look, almost as if it were screen printed.  It is backed with a slice of elegant cream-colored Bali fossil coral surrounded by a more subdued silver frame.  Both sides have a matte surface.  Another stunner from the lapidary of Gary Wilson.  

I have been moving ever-deeper into primitive surface treatments for silver.  My visual cues are desert stone, weathered metal, and wood fired ceramic surfaces encrusted with fly ash.  This one is definitely getting there.  The flat-sided bezel was mercilessly scratched and hammered while the bail was hammered on a section of old railroad track, heat textured, and hammered again.  No boring shiny jewelry on my watch.  The spring ends and hoop closure were similarly treated.  All of it has been deeply oxidized to a dark iridescence and given a matte finish.  The cord is soft, natural brown 3mm round leather.

Rustic, earthy, strong...deep down and uncompromising.  For a woman who honors her own strength and the strength of the Earth.

SIZE:  Cord length with closure:  17 1/2".  Pendant dimensions:  2" x 1 1/8" x 1/4".

CARE:   To clean, wipe the cabochon with a soft, damp cloth.  Wipe the silver likewise, or use a silver polishing cloth to brighten.  To restore a matte finish, gently buff silver with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad, carefully avoiding the stone.

PRESENTATION:  This necklace will come to you beautifully giftwrapped.  See my shop policies below for details.
