Black Tektite Wire-Wrapped Steampunk Pendant in Sterling Silver with Peridot. Heather Jordan Heather Jordan Jewelry
   
Earth and space come together in this wicked, wire-wrapped steampunk pendant. Handcrafted with a natural, black tektite (meteorite impactite) swathed in finely woven Sterling silver wire, faceted, gem-quality peridot beads and upcycled watch gears. The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, polished, then sealed in a coat of clear lacquer to preserve the aged finish of the piece and resist tarnish. The entire pendant measures 53x28x18mm (2.1» X 1.1» X 0.7») and comes suspended on your choice of chain.

Tektites are natural glass rocks up to a few centimeters in size, which most scientists argue were formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth's surface. According to the terrestrial-impact theory, a meteorite impact melts material from the Earth's surface and ejects it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site, through space (which accounts for their drastically low water content, which averages just 0.005%). The molten material cools and solidifies to glass before falling back down to Earth.

This piece comes in a luxurious, black velvet jeweler's box, contained in a cardboard outer shell (so you can wrap the box without damaging the velvet); perfect for gift-giving. This is an heirloom-quality piece you can treasure for many years to come and it ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind. Makes a great gift for the space enthusiast in your life!

*Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card.
