Prickly Pear Cactus Miniature Pendant
I made this little creature from melted recycled sterling silver and then carved each tiny segment to be then fused to each other individually. There are tiny fruits on the ends of some of the arms as well as two miniature flowers at her crown! I was modeling her after a prickly pear cactus as I was making her. The cactus is made from solid silver, the "soil" is pure copper, and the flower pot I made from brass. I hand etched the "spines" and then added a patina to darken the piece and polished to highlight it in certain spots. The pendant is about 1.5 inches tall and completely 3 dimensional.
This piece will come to you on a 18 inch long sterling silver necklace. All of my jewelry comes in a sweetly decorated gift box making them ready to be given as a gift, or as a gift or yourself. One of a kind finished pieces will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days.
I am open to creating your favorite flower or plant. Just send me a message and we can chat about it!
