Pendant




This was the very first real piece of jewelry that I ever made.  It is a simple sterling silver pendant, with a bird cut out.  This is not my favorite creation, but it holds sentimental value.

The bird is based on a petroglyph (rock engraving) carved by the native Pueblos of New Mexico from the Petroglyph National Monument outside of Albuquerque.

I like naming my stuff, so this is called "Petrified Cliff."  When I was on holiday with my family in New Mexico, I was convinced my mother was saying "petrified cliff" before I saw how petroglyph is spelled.  Thus, the name of the piece.
