A silver blackbird standing under a canopy of ivy.
This little blackbird is hand cut from sterling silver, and the ivy leaves are hand cut from copper, then textured and soldered to the 3D silver pendant to create something special.
Handmade at my Nottingham studio, this blackbird is inspired by watching the birds in the garden from my window. They seem to thrive in this semi urban/suburban environment.
The pendant measures approx 3cm x 2cm x 0.5cm.
Made from solid sterling silver and copper, the pendant hangs on an 18inch solid sterling silver snake chain.
The copper ivy has been sealed on the front of the necklace with a matt acrylic spray to protect the patina and should not be cleaned using anything abrasive. I would recommend carefully cleaning the silver with a jewellery polishing cloth.
