Few are altogether deaf to the preaching of pine trees. Their sermons on the mountains go to our hearts; and if people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.
– John Muir, “The National Parks and Forest Reservations,” Sierra Club Bulletin, v. 1, no. 7, January 1896
This necklace is part of my Alpine Collection, a salute to our beautiful natural world, inspired by my life in the Eastern Sierra.
I made this with mixed metals of Sterling Silver, copper and brass with a 4mm Citrine gemstone.
Pendant measures approximately 1 1/4" long x 3/4" wide, and hangs on an 20" sterling silver rolo chain.
I used traditional metalsmithing techniques to hand saw each element, then layer and solder onto the sterling silver tag style pendant.
Each piece individually hand sawn, textured, layered and soldered, so that no two are exactly alike.
Please see all photos for depiction of size.
Your jewelry will be shipped to you in a gift box. I include a complimentary Sunshine Polishing Cloth with each piece of jewelry.
