Shelf Fungus Sterling Silver Pendant
This fungi pendant is inspired from hiking within redwood forests, where you will find an abundance of varying fungi like little treasures among the trees. Shelf fungus grows in so many beautiful shapes and densities, this pendant is a design that features my creative interpretation of these special polypores.
This detailed creation also features a lichen (rhizocarpon) cabochon! Cover everything except the stone with a cloth or paper towel and lightly spray once a month to keep the stone "alive". The stone color may lighten or darken over time but I haven't noticed a change in the year I've had it.
The pendant is entirely handmade from sterling silver sheet and wire, no part of this design is cast! Each little fungi and tree shape was drawn onto and cut from silver sheet metal using a handheld jewelers saw. Each piece was then textured and formed using multiple techniques over several hours to bring detail and life to this design. This pendant is truly a piece of wearable art and a one of a kind creation.
The chain is .925 sterling silver and 20" long and the pendant measures approximately 2.25" x 1.10".
A patina has been applied and then polished to bring out the details of this dynamic scene.
