The Copper ‘Pea Pod’ is created by hand from copper sheet metal using the technique of fold forming. The Chrysoprase ‘peas’ are held on a paddle of Sterling Silver, and there are Sterling Silver ‘tendrils’ hanging in front of the ‘peas’. The piece is kinetic with the ‘peas and tendrils’ moving independently of the ‘pod’. The ‘pea pod’ is 3 inches (7.8cm) long and less than one inch (2cm) at its widest point, and it contains seven 6mm Chrysoprase beads. It hangs on a Sterling Silver bail from a Sterling Silver 22 inch (56cm) chain. There is only one of these necklaces, but it may be possible to commission a similar necklace.
My work is all hand made by me The Metal Artisan using traditional tools and techniques. I use a variety of metals including Copper, Fine and Sterling Silver, Aluminium, Brass, and Semi Precious Gemstones all sourced from reputable UK companies. Cords are Faux Suede, Cotton, Hemp, or Rubber depending on style. All boxes are made in the UK from recycled paper sourced in the UK/EU, please reuse or recycle. Some of the pieces are lightly waxed to preserve the patina. Thank you for your interest.
