The focal point of this pendant is a stunning dark green seraphinite stone. The feather patterns displayed by the stone are chatoyant, meaning that they seem to shift with the light (displaying the 'cat's eye effect'). The back side of the pendant features a silver pine tree being watched over by a bronze crescent moon. Below this is my stamped maker's mark (BLJ). The pendant has a decorative bail and a loop for a chain. 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, with the exception of the bronze moon.
The pendant measures 1.75" tall and 1" wide at the widest point.

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
