Hand crafted leaf pendant with a miniature gecko of watch parts and a facetted drop of natural paridot.
Sterling silver setting is made from scratch by hand in traditional goldsmith techniques and finished by hand: brushed and oxidised (its surface is darkened). There is a tiny clockwork gecko sculpted of elements from old watch movements inside. This original pendant with miniature reptile is secured by transparent, glossy resin.
A drop of beautiful, natural peridot was hung at the bottom of this original pendant. It is a precious stone which is a rare variety of olivine in a light green color. If we would like to rely on unconventional medicine, this gemstone not only neutralizes toxins, thus cleansing the organism but accelerates metabolism and recovery processes as well. I don't know if it actually has such a health-promoting properties, but I as a jeweller I admit that I really enjoyed working with this natural stone - I really love green color and I often create pieces inspired with nature, which is visible in works like this one!
