Here's a piece of perennial fruit from a faraway imaginary land, designed to delight you from from Spring to Winter and back again. A pomegranate? A pineapple? Or it is the plume of an exotic bird?

I made the necklace from from extra special fabrics I've been saving. It's silk dyed with my home grown Japanese indigo. One year the crop of fresh leaves gave the turquoise I used for the top and another year a different harvest produced the aqua colour on the inside of the fruit. The fruit is heavy with juicy, dark red garnets.

The adjustable chain is decorated with a single garnet and closes with a handmade hook clasp. All metal is antiqued sterling silver.

Size: the pendant measures 3.5 x 7 cm (1 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches) and the chain can be closed at 47 and 58 cm (18 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.
