A truly unique and magical necklace to wear and treasure. A rabbit agrees to swiftly transport a tired faerie to where she needs to go. Above the scene another Faerie peaks out to be part of the scene, while magic swirls in the background, which is all framed by twisting branches. Faeries are guardians of earth energy, are fond of animals and those humans who care for them. Of course faeries are also ethereal, they have magic, sometimes using it for good and at other times to stir up mischief. Rabbits are a symbol of fertility, new life and sexuality. They can also help to lead humans to the faerie realm. They speak of fulfillment and prosperity after a time of hard work.
After I finished my collection of Spirit Animals I moved on to combining faeries with animals. I've always loved both faeries and animals, but this jewelry collection is the first time that I've combined them together in one piece. The combination of faerie and animal interacting together has totally possessed me and I hope the magic I've felt in the creation process is conveyed to you in this finished piece of fairy tale jewelry.
The focal point of Faerie and Rabbit Pendant is 1 1/2 inches wide by 1 7/8 inches tall, with overall dimensions of 2 1/2 inches tall. The bail is 1 inch wide, accepts a 4mm cord and is Pandora friendly, an 18" woven leather cord is included with this piece of artisans jewelry. A dark patina has been applied to enhance the detail and give contrast to this magical piece of fantasy jewelry. The angled view of the woodland pendant shows the dimension of the sculpture. I also have a version of this faerie pendant with attached chain and dangling stones, look in the faerie section of my shop. A 16 inch black cord is included, for a high quality sterling silver chain please see https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190048/interlocking-sterling-silver-chain or https://www.etsy.com/listing/244190540/woven-style-sterling-silver-chain
I started by creating a detailed pencil drawing of this fantasy jewelry design to refine my idea and layout the design of the piece. I then begin to sculpt everything in wax, first by addressing the overall composition, then proportion and musculature of the individual characters, lastly overlaying all of it with detailing. This was a very time and labor intensive process; including facial expressions, wings and branches. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, and patina applied. I have left the background dark to add depth and contrast to this piece of faerie jewelry. Hand polishing followed by a coat of Renaissance Wax is gives the silver a soft glow and helps protect against tarnish. 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.
