    Hello everyone.
    This pendant is a recent purchase.
    Have no idea who the maker might be lol.
    I think it is just so pretty and oh so very dainty! Measures about 3cm from top of bale.
    I would say the chain, which is marked silver on the clasp, could be original to the piece.
    A nice touch is the leaf on the bail.....really sweet:-)
    Hope you enjoy seeing this and love it as much as I do. Perhaps someone might recognize this style of work and all comments most welcome. Thanks Judy

      That's lovely, Judy! No help with the maker, though.... :-((((

      Thanks Bonnie:-) must admit I am not overly concerned about the maker, I just adore it anyway and the price was very reasonable too!

      Hi Jan, thank you. It actually is the 'operculum' of a mollusc: Turbo smaragdus/petholatus etc or Turban snails. It's the animal form of a 'hatch' and nicely is the same round or oval shape of a submarine's breech/hatch.
      So part of a snail shell, amazing isn't it :-)

      Is anyone having trouble with trying to post pictures using the computer? I had to post this one using the tablet which I find a little more dificult.

      Beautiful bit of shell, Judy, I too thought it was a cat's eye, then saw the swirl on the back of the pendant. :)
    9. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 2 years ago
      Hi Katherine, thanks for the comment:-) Glad you love this little beauty, I am really over the moon, so happy to have it:-)

      Judy, can't help either with your "mysterious maker" ;-)

      Really a nice Arts and Crafts pendant, gracious and in perfect condition with its chain, BRAVO for your catch!

      That is called a CATS EYE from a Pacific Ocean shell--the little door for the shell's resident. Beautiful color.

      I like this a lot Judy! Some operculum are too big and make me uneasy for some reason, but this one is perfectly suited to the mount. Well done with the original chain too!
