Anis estrella, small pod, made to order

This dramatic pendant was cast from a beautiful, natural star anise. Star anise is a spice traditionally used in Asian and Mexican cooking. It is often associated with a strong licorice flavor.

I made a mold from the original pod and had it cast, I then went to work polishing to a high shine. To truly show the texture, I have blackened areas and re-polished the high points. Every detail is true to the original pod.

The texture on the back is just as lovely as that on the front, feel free to flip it over and wear it that way too!

Pendant is sterling silver. It measures 25mm by 23mm.

Comes on an 16" sterling silver chain. If you prefer a different length just let me know!

I am making these to order right now, please allow 2-3 weeks for me to make it for you.
