“Flutter in the Light”

Copyright 2018

As the evening begins to set
Into the still of the night,
Tucked under a dark hidden corner,
Perched under a lone little leaf
Coaxed as if under a spell,
Fluttering towards the moonlight beam
Moths gather.

This one of a kind, artisan pendant is entirely handmade with much love and a huge appreciation and admiration for the magnificent beauty of nature. I hand cut the all natural Laguna Lace Agate stone with a beautiful deep beveled cut. It took a phenomenal glass-like polish. This thick cut stone is sourced from Mexico. It is a member of the Mexican Crazy Lace family. The patterning and colors are a perfect match for the metalwork design that I had envisioned for it. The stone’s rich colors consist of rust, orange, white, cream, tan and translucent. This particular cabochon has a lot of incredible depth.

This tedious, time consuming metalwork consists primarily of solid sterling silver and some bronze. The moth design overlay work is two layers of bronze soldered on top of the sterling silver base plate. Two Southwestern style embellishments adorn the front side, while the sterling bead wire compliment the overall design. There is a moon and star insignia on the backside that is representational of cosmic/ universal oneness. The cabochon stone was set using fine silver sawtooth bezel. The metalwork was given a soft satin brushed finish and an oxidized black patina.

A few of the listing photos shows the pendant paired with a 4mm thick leather cord necklace just to give a good visual as to how the pendant hangs. The pendant does not include a chain or necklace.
My photography was taken indoors in the natural indirect lighting. Colors may vary slightly on monitors and devices.
