...a moment when time stood still, the mysterious blending of transience and something eternal.
The silk for this delicate flower was dyed with plants in a way so that it changes colour near the centre. It starts with a mellow orangey red on the petals and intensifies into a more cinnamon-y colour near the centre. It's smocked in complementary colours and has several long stamens decorated with golden glass beads. It can be worn with either side facing.
The pendant hangs on a substantial, adjustable chain that closes with a handmade hook clasp. All metal is antiqued sterling silver.
Size: the pendant is 6.5 cm (2 1/2 inches) long and 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inches) wide. The chain can be closed at 50 and 58 cm (19 1/2 and 22 1/2 inches).
As with all textiles, storing the necklace out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep it at its best.
