Foothills Farm Apple Tree
Shipping to United States: Free $7.50
This is a hand pierced one of a kind piece. I use two sheets of silver, the top piece allows me to drill a tiny hole in the silver, weave my saw blade through the hole and carefully cut out a the trunk of the tree. I will change blades to a finer tooth blade for the detail in the branches. Essentially, I am drawing with my jewelers hand saw. I will carefully solder the piece that I have pierced onto another round disc of silver, finish the detail and oxidize it for contrast.
I rent a small cottage on an apple orchard and my studio window looks out over rows of apple trees. I find inspiration in nature.
The pendant is a little over an inch and hangs on an 18' snake chain.
