Description

Sterling silver dainty necklaces with snowflake imprint. (The listing is for ONE necklace). The snowflakes are etched images of the famous Wilson Bentley's snowflakes photographs.

The pendants measure approximately 13 mm (0.5 inches) across and have been given a brushed finish. They hang on a 45 cm (~18 inches) delicate sterling silver chain.

There are 5 imprints available, numbered from No.1 to No.5, clearly presented in the 3rd picture. Please choose your favourite snowflake pendant from the menu at the right of this page. It will arrive beautifully packed in a black box.

---------------
Wilson Bentley (1865 –1931) is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. Fascinated by snowflakes, he perfected a way of catching them on black velvet so that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimated. He made photographing snowflakes his life project and managed to capture more than 5000 ice crystals in his lifetime. He told a magazine in 1925: "Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind".
