Diving Whale Sterling Silver Pendant necklace
I have a deep love for whales - alas, I've never seen one in real life, but I keep it on my bucket list in hope :) - just watching video footage of them makes me well up and get all emotional. it was only a matter of time before I made my own tribute to them wasn't it!
Hand cut from 100% sterling silver sheet, the whale's tail is made of a thicker and then thinner layer of silver, which I solder with silver together and then carve into to create the shape. The wave is a single layer and very lightly hammered to create a subtle texture.
I've framed the scene in a circle of twisted sterling and finished it by oxidising (aging) the whole piece and then polishing back the highlights leaving the darker areas for detail.
Made to order, this pendant is available on its own, on a leather or cotton adjustable cord, or on a sterling silver chain - the length of your choice.
Size: Approx 3cm width and just over 3cm in depth.
As these are hand made, each one is individual, and whilst I will follow the original drawings I made for this one, there may be some slight variations in each that is created.
Comes boxed, ready to give or keep just for yourself :)
Ordering and Postage
I make everything to order just for you - with this in mind, please order in plenty of time for your deadline and please allow me up to five business days (normally sooner) to get your order made and in the post to you. If your order is urgent, you must contact me first to see if I can jiggle my makes-book for you - I will always try my absolute best to get your piece to you on time but I cannot make and send within 24 hours (I've tried, it didn't work, my brain just melted!)
- There are three options for postage:
Free Post: If you choose this option, I will send your order Second Class Signed For by Royal Mail once your piece is made. Royal Mail are currently experiencing some delays, and whilst they aim to deliver within 3 working days, please allow up to 10 days after you receive my dispatch email. This option means your parcel is insured for up to £50.
First Class Signed For: As above but will arrive sooner than Freepost. Whilst Royal Mail aim to deliver within one working day, please allow up to 3 days.
Special Delivery: If you choose this option your order will be sent by Next Day Delivery. Please note, this isn't the next day after ordering, I still need to make your jewellery, but once made you can expect delivery the next business day after receiving your dispatch email.
As I work from a studio and not a retail space I am not permitted to allow collection of orders. All orders will be posted, or hand-delivered where possible.
Thank you for your understanding, these are wonky times aren't they and inevitably delays with post will arise - if we work together I reckon we can avoid many of them :)
