Pendant, Sterling Silver, Original Etching
Custom family tree pendant with original illustration. I designed this piece with the family names in a circle so that I could place a handmade rivet in between each one. The rivets are functional, as they hold the front and back elements of the piece together.
I grew up on many acres of woods and farmland, and have always enjoyed drawing trees; this one was no exception. I enjoy the staccato interplay of the leaf pattern with the the letters in the names in this piece. I wrote the hidden message on the back with my own dip pen calligraphy.
