Imagine a fairy-tale wedding of two elves transferred from the realities of "The Lord of the Rings" to our world? Impossible? Possible. What's more, it was the most beautiful wedding, we were ever invited. We were asked by the bride and groom, who are our good friends, to prepare a few jewelry details: wedding rings, cufflinks for the groom and a pendant.
I must admit that the pendant was the biggest challenge. I didn't want to make it exactly the same as the one Arwen wore. Auction websites are bursting with copies of it (usually of poor quality). We expect something more from our works. Therefore, instead of the crystal Evenstar, I decided to focus on the woman, so I placed the figure of a proud, self-confident elf with a full, charming silhouette in the heart of the pendant.
I made the pendant step by step. First I made sterling silver sheet and wire by myself. Then I carefully cut it into the individual elements, sanded and polished them. Persistently and with appropriate force, I carved out the structure of the background, groove by groove and I bent the flower petals towards the elf, so that they would metaphorically protect her, guard but subtly enough to still leave her free and independent. Maybe even a bit shameless... but what would a being who knows his great value be ashamed of? This is something that must not be overwhelmed. The tiny figure of the proud elf was cast based on my freehand sculpture that I cut out in wax some time ago. The crown is made by hand from thin silver sheet and gilded.
I brought this pendant into existence by soldering prepared elements, step by step. I charged it with a good, feminine energy, strength and love. Then I gave it to the hands and the neck of an extraordinary girl. The drop below the Elven Queen's feet is a faceted mountine gem - a stone with the power to neutralize negative energy and cleanse the aura. It frees the body, mind and soul from anxiety and stress, turning bad energy into good energy.
The work is unique, made in a single copy.
