:: Winter Sun ::

The time of thin, cold sunlight filtering through a glaze of high clouds that drift over a monochromatic high desert landscape...the rich golds of October have faded into buffs and greys.  We await the first snows...

Here, a fragment of deer's antler radiates like a winter sun.  This beautiful pendant was made from the end of a naturally-shed antler, polished front and back to the most delicious smoothness.  I placed it on an extra-long strand of ecru freshwater pearls that gleam with their own light.  Between each pearl are beads of oxidized India brass, accented with a tube of Naga conch shell, brass, and a vintage mother-of-pearl bead.  Above the juncture lies a stack of brass, Naga conch shell, and a bronze disc molded from the forehead of a turtle skull.   Tiny antique French steel cut beads form the loop suspending the antler pendant, while an oxidized brass wire wrap conceals the crimp beads.

This is an elegant and luxurious talisman that evokes the hunting times of our ancestors, and the beautiful deer that nourished us...and in some cases, still do.  The pearls are symbols of water, always precious to desert dwellers, and by their nature also embody gentleness and the soothing of difficulties.  A stunning piece for cold winter days and beyond...

SIZE:  The necklace measures 23" from the back of your neck to the bottom of the antler pendant when worn. 

CARE:  Do not immerse antler in water as it may split.  Clean with a soft, damp cloth.
