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 Eastern Sierra surroundings.
I made this with mixed metals of Sterling Silver and copper with a beautiful Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stone.
Pendant measures approximately 1 1/4" long x 3/4" wide, and hangs on an 18" sterling silver box chain.
I used traditional metalsmithing techniques to hand saw the pine trees, mountains and snow cap peak, 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, and see the hand sawn pine tree I layered on the back side.
Your jewelry will be shipped to you in a gift box. I include a complimentary Sunshine Polishing Cloth with each piece of jewelry.
