Coastal Inspired Natural Apatite Silver Pendant, which I have designed and made by hand here in the north-east of England.
The pendant design is inspired by the Northumbrian coastal environment, including shapes of the fronds of a seaweed found abundantly on the north-east coast, and has a textured background reminiscent of beach pebbles. I have set this with a tiny piece of untreated green apatite gemstone collected by hand in the Northumbria region, England, in the United Kingdom.
The apatite gemstone is likely to have come from the cargo of a 19th century ship, wrecked off the coast of Whitley Bay (all crew got off safely), and I collect this locally.
There are 3 pendant sizes available:
- Large pendant size: approx. 7/8 inch square (22 mm square).
- Medium pendant size: just under 3/4 inch square (18 mm square).
- Small pendant size: approx. 9/16 inch square (14 mm square).
The pendant has a hand-forged wide rolled bail, and comes on a sterling silver trace chain – please select the length.
I make every pendant individually – each one is unique so may vary slightly in appearance from the one pictured.
I purchase all of my raw silver materials from established, reputable UK suppliers. This piece has been sterling silver hallmarked in England.
