Poppy Seed Pod Pendant in Sterling Silver

Poppy Seed Pod Pendant in Sterling Silver


Cute seed pod in silver. Oxidized to bring out the detail. Preserved specimen of nature and a lovely symbol of renewal and regrowth - The circle of life.
Would be a lovely gift for someone setting out on their own or starting a new venture.

The pendant is made from a real seed pod; painted carefully in many layers with metal clay made into slip. Metal clay is pure silver particles mixed together with an organic binder to make a malleable substance. Here it was thinned down to slip that could be painted on. Once the coat was thick enough - about 1 mm, the pod was fired in a kiln. The pod and the organic binder burned away completely, leaving pure fine silver.
I then attached the jump ring in sterling silver for strength and added a sterling silver ball chain.

For anyone who loves nature.
The pod measures 29 mm by 11 mm - (with jump ring) and the ball chain is 18" (45cm) long.
