Pyritized Ammonite Steampunk Pendant with Recycled Watch Parts. Heather Jordan Heather Jordan Jewelry
   
This big, beatiful pendant was woven by-hand around a large, pyritized ammonite fossil, with open cavities (showing the internal compartments), lovingly cradled in solid Sterling silver wire. Recycled watch parts, were elaborately woven onto the frame, accented by a polished pyrite sphere, set in stacked Sterling silver bead caps. The outer shell of the ammonite on the back of the pendant was left in it's natural state and is almost completely shielded by a recycled pocket watch plate on the back. The wire was also coated in a clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the piece over time. The pendant comes suspended on your choice of chain and measures 72x55x21mm (2.8» X 2.2» X 0.8»).

Ammonites are extinct marine molluscs, most closely related to modern octopi, squids and, to a lesser extent, nautiloids. The word, “ammonite”, was inspired by the spiral shape of their shells. Originally, they were called ammonis cornua («horns of Ammon») because this Egyptian god was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. It is thought ammonites inhabited ancient shallow seas and succumbed to the same mass extinction responsible for the demise of the dinosaurs.

Rugged, organic and gorgeous, this pendant truly reflects the raw beauty of nature's finest treasures. Your pendant will arrive in a lovely gift box and ship securely in a padded envelope with international tracking and insurance from my studio to your chosen destination.

*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.
