This sparkling real lichen pendant was made using some white lichen from the floor of my favourite forest which I dried and encapsulated in a crystal- clear resin globe and hung on a Sterling silver chain. A beautiful keepsake from the Irish woodlands to carry with your wherever you go.
After casting the resin (which takes 2-3 days) I carefully hand-sand, buff, wax and polish the globe to create an exceptionally clear and shiny piece of nature art. The whole process can take as long as 5 days from start to finish.
The globe measures about 16mm. The cap connecting the globe to the chain is silver-toned alloy.
Your necklace will arrive safely packaged in one of my beautiful signature gift boxes, ready for gift-giving and with no need for further wrapping.
Please be aware that there will be some very small bubbles in your necklace. Someone recently described them as resembling little dew drops sitting on the flowers & leaves and I like to think they add their own little touch of life to each piece <3
Ruby Robin specializes in unique, keepsake jewellery for the modern day romantic. All the designs were imagined and made by Irish designer Khrystyna Marriott. The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories.
I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
