Half moon shaped Leland Blue Talisman Pendant backed with reclaimed Edgeworth tobacco tin.
The pendant and chain are oxidized sterling silver. The pendant measures 1.5 inches across and 1 inch long. It hangs on a 20 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 you more acceptance and self-compassion.
