During our Italian travel we spent some time at home, in our village on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, enjoying the company of friends and some quiet moments.
I used to spend some time sitting by the window, enjoying the beautiful view of the valley, the fields and the hills, with the delicate changes of colors during the day.
From the Window was born from this: some quiet time with nothing to think about, just peacefull exhisting and watching the nature living
The pendant is made of silver, oxidized silver and copper, using different techniques and several layers of the two metals. It is the second piece of the Layers of Nostalgia collection, made last autumn with the first batch of pendants. It is dated "October 2020". To allow the shape to stand our we have set the pendant in a hidden structure at the back.
It comes with its handmade chain and an oxidized s-shaped elegant clasp.
It has been built to last but it is more delicate than industrial jewelry. We have applied a protective layer on the surface to preserve its colours but they will slightly change somehow over the time as part of a natural process.
We use recycled silver as much as we can, to reduce the environmental impact of our work and for ethical reasons. Recycled silver has exactly the same characteristics and value of mined silver but it is obtained from old jewelry or silverware. From our personal point of view, it adds value to the jewelry we make.
Important: you may polish the piece with a conventional silverware cloth, taking on account that the darker parts may fade if you rub them.
