Budding branch pendant, sterling silver necklace, handmade silver jewelry


This lovely branch is just budding, about to burst into bloom!
I gathered the original pussy willow branches along the Northern California coast. 
I molded them and then spent hours bending and carving the fragile waxes into the shape I desired.
The resulting pendant is a delicate frame, almost wing shaped, with buds bursting forth in all directions.
Truly this is a wearable work of art!
I blackened the twig and then polished the high points to show all the beautiful, twiggy texture.

Pendant measures 2" by 3/4".
Comes on an 18" chain.
