Ornate Sterling Silver Cherub Pendant with Pink Andean Opal on chain.

The very center of this pendant features an antique sterling silver cherub from the Victorian era c.1880. It is beautifully detailed and crafted by an unknown silversmith long ago.

I hand crafted this pendant to give new life to the old piece of silver in the centerpiece, and the whole piece a feels like something out of your grandmother's jewelry box.

This piece has been hand antiqued to give it a patina similar to an old piece.

I created this piece by hand in my studio in New Hampshire using, files, saws, punches, hammers and fire.

ABOUT THE CHERUB:
~~~~~~~~~~~�ۢ�ۢ�ۢ~~~~~~~~~~~

The cherub (aka putti, cupid or angel) has been a potent symbol throughout history in many belief systems. I have always been drawn the feathery wings and pudgy faces that draw me closer to see what they are there to protect.

This particular cherub is from a piece of Victorian era sterling silver. I have had the cherub for close to thirty years and decided to use it as the centerpiece of this one of a kind pendant. Time has softened its details a bit but the effect is one of years of love. I enjoy working with found objects and finding a way to give them new life.

ABOUT THE STONE:
~~~~~~~~~~~�ۢ�ۢ�ۢ~~~~~~~~~~~

Andean Opal is a relatively rare stone that comes from the Andes Mountains in Peru. Usually either Pink or Blue, it does not have the play of color of the opal you might be used to. Instead it has a lovely translucency that almost glows in the sunlight. Pink Andean or Peruvian opal is also known as angelskin opal.
