The deep pink of this rhodochrosite stone immediately reminded me of cherry blossoms that pop up all around and make you catch your breath in the springtime. So, the cherry tree started to come to life. This entire pendant is made from melted sterling silver and then carved into their shapes with tiny tools that I have made just for this reason. The tree branch has so many little nooks and crannies for bugs to hide in, the leaves to provide shade for our little pig friend below, and cherry blossom flowers in all growth stages adorn the end of the tree branch.
The piglet below sitting on his little haunches is surrounded by tiny flowers, stones, and grasses.
This pendant measures inches 3.25 inches wide by 2 inches tall and I made it to be on a 20 inch sterling silver necklace. There is a large lobster claw and a heart as the clasp to keep the necklace safe.
All of my pieces come to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making them perfect for gift giving, or as a nice surprise for yourself.
