This pendant is part of the Verdant Winter Collection, a collection that was inspired by snowy pine forests hidden among the mountains.
The stone is a beautifully speckled piece of serpentine; the light green is heavily speckled by dark green. The back of this pendant has a hidden detail: part of the back has been cut out to show off the stone, and in the cutout the silhouette of three pines trees remain. These pine trees have been polished to a slightly shinier silver finish than the rest of the silver. All of the metal details have been sawn and textured by hand. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver. The pendant measures 1.5" tall and 0.75" wide at the widest point.
* There is a small cosmetic crack on the back on the right side. While there is no damage to structural integrity, I have listed the pendant at a reduced price as this crack is visible.

A few notes on caring for sterling silver jewelry: like fine silver, sterling silver does tarnish over time. Exposure to chemicals can affect the appearance on silver (like hair dye, pool chlorine, some soaps, etc.). It is not recommended to wear sterling silver jewelry while bathing or swimming for this reason. If it tarnishes, sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with cleaning cloths or solutions that are labeled as being safe for silver. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
