There’s something fascinating and otherworldly about lichen, a growth that is actually a symbiosis of an algae and a fungus living together. Lichen shapes are as diverse as its partner components, including cups, flakes, leaf forms, and tendrils. No two are exactly alike, with more than 13,000 species identified so far.
I am similarly enchanted by water casts, an addictive and unpredictable combination of fire, metal and water. While there are typical resulting forms, every cast or pour is different from the last and the sheer pleasure of pulling the casts out of the water feels a little like treasure hunting.
Each of the necklaces in this collection begins with the same basic foundation: a rectangular plate of sterling silver. Then the water casts are individually layered over and around one another to create the pendant, growing into a unique organic form. Like their namesakes, no two are alike.
You are purchasing the exact pendant show. It measures approximately 3/4″ by 1-1/2″, and is suspended on a 1.3mm sterling silver wire collar with a hidden tube bail. Ready to ship; choose a 16″, 18″ or 20″ collar.
