Absolutely gorgeous rose gold pine cone pendant on a pretty silver 90cm, long chain.
The fir cone measures 3.5cm by 1.8cm
The Fir cone is plated zinc alloy, and the chain is plated brass.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will know how excited I am about these necklaces.
I’ve wanted a fir cone necklace for ages, but could never find exactly what I was after. In the end, I decided if I can’t find what I want, I’ll have to get it made!
So I called a man in Shanghai, and showed him my design. Told him exactly what size I’d like it, (very technical, I found the perfect sized fir cone in my garden and measured it! lol) and then we had long discussions about materials, weights and finishes. We managed really well, between a 7 hour time difference, and some language problems!
My design was then magically created, digitally, and from that, they could make a mould.
The first cone off the press, was in bright blue wax.
They kept me updated all the time, from me showing them the initial concept and seeing it digitally recreated, through the whole manufacturing process, from the mould to the first wax cast, right through to the final pieces being assembled. It was so exciting and also very nerve wracking. The only detail I could not be certain of until I had them delivered, was the final finish and the weight.
I get so disappointed when jewellery is lightweight and ‘warm’
Not these! they are gorgeous and cold to the touch and have such a pleasing weight to them. (26g approx)
I am tickled PINK with them and I hope you love them too!
The only problem….what colour to choose!!
I am having one of each!
