Hidden Garnet Pendant Necklace
This unusual Hidden Garnet Pendant Necklace is hand-formed in sterling silver. It has sculptural silver leaves that entwine a little oval faceted garnet. Garnet is a beautiful blood-red stone. In this necklace, it is a little secret for the wearer. It hangs from a fine rollo or round belcher chain. I never make the same thing twice; consequently, this necklace is unique.
Inspired by Music and Synaesthesia
I am synaesthetic, which is a neurological trait where my senses cross. Therefore I have a strong visual impression of shape, colour, movement and sometimes texture when I hear music. This Hidden Garnet Pendant Necklace is inspired by what I see when I listen to electric guitar. To me, electric guitar looks like lightning made of silver. As a result, the shape of this curled silver pendant is a little snippet of music made visible by my synaesthesia.

What Is It Made Of?
Mining silver is an environmentally invasive process, so I use recycled silver in all my work. The sterling silver I used to make this pendant comes from old and broken silverware and cutlery. Consequently, I can eliminate the need for newly mined silver in my work. I melted a piece of old silverware down. Then I skillfully hand forged the resulting ingot of molten silver into this Hidden Garnet Pendant Necklace.
