Upcycled hardware Whale tail necklace, antique iron hinge escutcheon with faceted labradorite nugget and sterling silver.

When I saw this antique iron hinge escutcheon in a Berlin flea market it reminded me of a whale tail, so inspired I added sterling silver chain tassels and a large faceted labradorite nugget to suggest the tail rising from the steel grey ocean, a trail of ice blue water droplets cascading down. Blue flash and gunmetal grey combining with the mottled black patina of the escutcheon…

… all the sterling silver is oxidised and the chain is 28" and closes with a handmade silver hook and eye clasp.

Across cultures from Russia to China the whale is considered a charm for good luck and strength. For the Maori, the whale is the most significant of all creatures and represents success, confidence and sensitivity as well as being an important amulet for protection. It also symbolises the sacred bond between humans and animals.

Very limited edition… I have only three of these escutcheons.
