This is an entirely hand carved pendant of a little cardinal family in their tree home made from recycled sterling silver. I created the perfect for them solid silver tree branch with bends, nooks, gnarly bark, and added tiny hand cut leaves and flowers throughout their home. There is a father cardinal on the left of the necklace keeping watch out over his little family. The mother cardinal is sitting above her nest checking on her three tiny eggs inside the nest they built together. The nest is made of several different types of intertwined and connected silver wires creating a comfy nest for the soon to be babies.
The entire pendant measures 2.5 inches across and is about 1.5 inches tall. I created this piece to be connected to a 20 inch long sterling silver loop chain. The necklace closure is a heart and bar that intertwine each other to keep the necklace closed.
Since I carved each part of this necklace by hand, there will never be another one like it. I think it is the perfect mother’s pedant for a nature and bird lover.
Each of my pieces come to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making them perfect for gift giving or as a nice gift for yourself. One of a kind finished pieces will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days.
