Water Cast Sterling Silver Mushroom Necklace

£59.00 GBP

An organic, mushroom pendant created in sterling silver using the water casting method hangs from a sterling silver chain.

    • The pendant hangs from an 18" sterling silver chain
    • closes with a hand forged clasp in my Bird Mother shape, recalling ancient bird mother iconography
    • The clasp is accented with two micro-faceted smoky quartz beads
    • Hallmarked at the Assay Office in Edinburgh with the Edinburgh assay mark, the Scottish silver mark as well as my maker's mark
    • The molten silver formed a small cave containing a mushroom
    • Reminiscent of Shunga, the erotica of Edo-era Japan, this pendant is weighty with sensual power

This process of water casting uses the elements of fire, water, earth and air in a  formative ritual. It is a form of divination. To read more about argyromancy, you can see this blog post: https://www.feralstrumpet.co.uk/blogs/news/argyromancy-or-what-the-silver-told-me

All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
