p48 Sterling Silver Garnet Pendant


Presenting a handcrafted artist pendant.
Originally handmade in wax, cast in Sterling Silver and bezel set with a lovely Garnet gemstone.

The setting was arduously cut into the silver to secure the stone on a minuscule ledge proceeded by hammering the rim over the girdle of the gemstone. The forged rim was subsequently clear cut with a graver tool. A very secure setting.

This design has evolved and originated over 40 years ago with a sculpture commission by Novelist John Gardner in celebration of his novel Grendel. This fine art pendant depicts Beowulf and the dragon character in the retelling of the ancient Anglo-Saxon epic poem.  

A captivating jewelry conception in sterling silver befitting a cultivated mind.
