Diminutive but robust droplet. Scored and lightly bruised then shaped into a pendulous drop and vigorously twisted for fluidity and flow. Shape refined and curves developed, then medium oxidised and rubbed back in stages, to give varying degrees of contrast. The edges and ripple then brought to a high shine to accentuate the movement. It has a pleasing weight for such a small piece (due to the thickness), with a sinuous, brooding elegance. Hung on a 16 inch belcher chain. 20mm x 10mm and 2mm thick.
Hallmarked consisting of Maker's mark, Traditional Fineness mark, Millesimal Fineness mark, Assay Office mark and Date Letter mark.
'Gothic Droplet' pendant
Try to avoid wearing your jewellery when swimming, playing sport, gardening, doing DIY or in contact with chemicals, such as household cleaning agents, etc. If you are storing your jewellery for any length of time, wrap it in tissue/cloth and seal in an airtight bag to prevent oxidation. When cleaning jewellery, never use commercial chemical jewellery-cleaners, which invariably weaken the metal and can cause damage. Simply wash in mild soapy water, rinse and wipe clean. Then lightly polish with a soft cloth (a glasses-lense cloth is ideal).
