Gold Scots Pine with Sapphires
Delivery: 2-3 weeks
Strength. Stability. Beauty.
The Scots Pine tree can live up to 700 years. But, every year, in the dry, early days of Summer, its ripe cones crack open, exploding hundreds of seeds into the wind. You can actually hear it happen, and see the trail of seeds floating away on the warm breeze.
We make this necklace in our casting foundry. First, we create a wax model that is the exact size and shape of the finished pendant. We place the Sapphires into the wax model, then we place the model in a special plaster and heat it in our kiln until the wax melts away. We then melt the gold down and pour it into the plaster – filling up the spaces the wax models left behind, and surrounding and encapsulating the gemstones. The rest is the skill of filing, shaping and polishing by hand until we have something as beautiful as in our pictures, but that our hand-made process has rendered subtly unique and individual.
The making process of this 9K Gold and Sapphire pendant brings both elements together to form an indivisible whole – a truly elegant and beautiful necklace that becomes more than the sum of its parts. Each of the 15 solid gold branches unfurls onto a clear 1mm sapphire, representing the pine cones ready to burst into new life.
