Though I have always had a deep admiration for whales, the universe has been sending so many pings my way the last few weeks, it occurred to me that I was supposed bring them in to my work.
This Humpback whale was created using the gorgeous illustrations from the enigmatic Charles Melville Scammon in the mid 1800s.
The whale has been paired with a silver sea background and the whole construction has been riveted to a length of waxed steel wire wrapped with blue-gray tin. The pendant is strung on a 1mm 18” long stainless steel chain with tiny beads, a lobster clasp and a 2” extension chain
The finished pendant is approximately 2.75" (68mm) wide and 1.75" (44mm) tall.
Each piece of metal comes to me having lived a previous life--in some cases multiple lives! It is not unusual for the material to sometimes have scuffs, scratches, faded portions, and general wear and tear. If a flawless finish is important to you, please zoom in to the pictures here to look for imperfections that might be distracting for you.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
