The Earth Music pendant is made out of solid silver. My wife’s sister Sue made her a beautiful pottery wallplaque which included the text, ‘The Earth has its music for those who will listen’ from a poem by Reginald Holmes.
Due to Covid-19 and the enforced isolation the words spoke to me now more than ever. When we take the time to listen to nature, everything seems better, and I was inspired to make a piece of jewellery to include the words.
The Earth Music pendant is made using traditional letter punches, these were cleaned up, oiled and used to stamp the tool from which the pendants would be struck. The Earth music pendant is part of an ongoing ‘Hand Punches Collection’ project. I feel it is important to continue to use old tools, and find it rewarding to create something new using them.
Each pendant comes with a 50cm snake chain and in a recyclable gift box. It would make the perfect gift for both men or women. We make these in very small batches and each one is individually numbered. I gave my sister-in-law Sue no.1 for Christmas.
