I found this spectacular Mother of Pearl pendant in Italy. It has a cool shell on top of the clasp which you can open and add potpourri, the original intent, or a secret note known only to you! How fun! I have added a heavy-weight silver chain to complement the lovely silver etched on the pendant.
It is a whopping 33" long. The pendant is almost 4" long and can be worn in reverse if you prefer.
This necklace is one of a kind and lovingly handmade by me in my home studio in San Francisco. Most of my creations are a mix of antique, vintage, and new parts, some of which may (or may not) show signs of aging and wear. I feel that such “imperfections” only add character to the piece and hope that you do too.
