Quiet, brittle things,
ghosts of previous seasons,
bleached and blackened by winter,
forgotten bearers of memories.
The pendant is made from crisp silk organza dyed with iron and tannin. It is dark brown and white. The dark portion is smocked with dark brown thread with added black glass seed beads. The light portion has a soft, raw edge representing the thistledown.
The pendant hangs on a long chain and moves freely between two nuggets of dark red garnet. The chain closes with a handmade hook clasp. All metal components are antiqued sterling silver.
Size: the pendant is 7.5 cm (2 3/4 inches) long and 8 cm (3 inches) across the fabric part. The chain measures 56 cm (22 inches)
As with all textiles, storing the necklace out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep it at its best.
