Leland Blue Talisman Pendant backed with antique Edgeworth tobacco tin.
The pendant and chain are oxidized sterling silver. The pendant measures 1.75 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. It hangs on a 31 inch chain.
I think of these pieces as talismans for acceptance and self-compassion. The Leland Blue stones are made of slag, a waste product of smelting in which raw ore is heated and the desired iron ore is separated from various impurities. When the impurities cool this material is formed. I see it similar to ourselves. We take our most desired qualities and keep them, often casting aside “impurities” or undesired parts of ourselves that are actually really beautiful. I love the way this waste product was collected, cut and polished. I love setting it in precious metal so the pieces can be worn and revered. It is my sincerest hope that these pieces bring more acceptance and self-compassion to you as the wearer.
