This Bridge group features Oxidized Fine Silver and an intriguing collection of stones. I've highlighted spots along all the pendants, allowing for a stunning mixture of darkness and light to exist simultaneously. There's a toughness to an oxidized piece, a lack of fuss, a straightforward I'm so busy living life that I don't care what's shiny kind of attitude No matter the shine or oxidations, the Bridge Pendant reminds us to build connections with each other just as the tube bail bridges the distance between the structural armatures of the pendant. The wire twines between two supports, two separate, but important structures, one wrap, one word, one moment in time where we stretch towards each other and Communicate, not "communihate".
A: Ice Flow in Darkness. The angular coexistence of the Royston Mine Turquoise and the dark caramel host rock reminds me of dark waters and chunks of ice floating in the dark of winter near the poles. There's a glimmer of Northern Lights in the pale, soft green Tourmaline mounted in 14k Gold. I love the swooping arch of the armatures, lending this piece Gothic Arabesque roots, a clash of man and nature. Measuring just over 2 1/2" in length and 1" in width, this piece arrives on a 16", 18", 20" or 24" Oxidized Sterling Silver Ball Chain.
B: City Lights in Misty Darkness. The Rhodonite of this Bridge Pendant has mesmerizing swirls of pink, black and gray. Have you ever seen the colored lights of a city off in the distance through fog or mist? That's the feeling of this piece, a glimpse of the City or Lights through the hills and valleys of the Versailles approach. Measuring 1 5/8" long by 7/8" wide, this piece arrives on a 16", 18", 20" or 24" Oxidized Sterling Silver Ball Chain.
C: Marcasite in Oxidized Silver: Sold
D: Piercing the Darkness. Satin finished Dry Creek Turquoise cabochon set in oxidized fine silver with a white freshwater pearl. This piece is a Hinged Bridge Pendant signifying multi part negotiations, communications and system dynamics. One piece cannot move without the other, but it is the structure, construction, and attachment which effects how the system reacts as a whole. This pendant reminds us that even in the swirl of darkness, they foundations of our society are solidly built and CAN and WILL move as we deem. Don't be afraid to be the light point in the darkness and claim focus, even if you are more satin than shine. Measuring 2 5/8" long and 1 1/4", this piece arrives on a 16", 18", 20" or 24" Oxidized Sterling Silver Ball Chain.
As ever, the radiant texture on my bezels reminds us to seek a higher level of energy in our lives. Shedding negative and low energy allows us to resonate with Joy, Happiness, and Hope and encourages us to seek alignment in our hearts and minds.
