  • The antique Victorian, marked silver pendant sets the scene. A vigorous stag is leaping through the fields and woods. The etching and embossed deer are so detailed it clearly points to Victorian craftsmanship.  Circa 1880, this pendant (1 ½ inches across, or 4 cm, and 1 ¼ inches high, or 3 cm) was once possibly a locket but certainly a brooch, now altered to a pendant.

  • And because of this scene, it brought to mind a crystal sharp day, with green moss and trees, and berries on the bushes for the deer to enjoy, as well as dark rocks to clamber over.

  • So there is a pattern of rough- cut peridot (16 mm), faceted crystal cylinders with moss inclusions (14.8mm x 19.8mm), jet cylinders (16 mm x 19 mm), and vibrant sponge coral cylinders, (13mm x 15 mm).  And just to echo the silver pendant, I’ve added vintage, handmade silver on hardened resin beads from India.

  • I have used a silver toggle clasp made by the Karen hill tribes, of twisted silver to create a rope design.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

  • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

  • The necklace is 18½ inches long, or 47 cm. with a 1½ inch pendant drop.
