Brave Frolicking Faerie Pendant in Sterling Silver
The enchanting Brave faerie pendant is available with 3 different bail options: a twisted sterling silver jumpring, scrollwork tube bail, or triangular bail featuring a gemstone accent.
When selecting either the jumpring or tube bail please pick "No Stone" from the gemstone dropdown list.
A delightful faerie, named Brave, shows courage in whatever she does and wherever she goes, full of confidence and courage. This enchanting pendant is part of my Frolicking Faerie Collection of fantasy jewelry, sculpted three dimensionally so as she moves on your neck she is beautiful from every angle, even the back of the bail is detailed. Scrollwork is featured on both bail choices of this fantasy pendant as well as the faeries wings which tie the two together to make a truly magical piece of fantasy jewelry. There are 5 other figures that are available, 4 faeries and 1 mermaid: Brave, Joy, Spirit, Clarity and Tranquil.
The Brave Faerie is 5/8" wide x 1 1/8" tall. The faerie is attached to the scrollwork bail with a jump ring allowing her to twist and turn as you move, taking on a life of her own. The bail will accept a thick 4mm cord or chain and is Pandora friendly. A 16 inch woven black cord is included, she also looks wonderful on the vine entwined neckwire.
As with all of my work this piece of fantasy jewelry is my original design was created using the lost wax method. I first start by doing a detailed drawing of my intended subject. Then I sculpt my design in wax. I start with overall shape and form, making sure all the individual pieces are proportional to each other, then adding detail such as facial features, fingers, toes, hair and scrollwork wings. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, linked together, soldered, patina applied, then completed by a final polish. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections.
If you love faeries, handmade craftsmanship, the world of fantasy, Renaissance or just want to take a little bit of fun and mischief with you into your day, this is the pendant for you.
