This porcelain pendant is glazed in a soft greyish violet. It reads:


A tree ascended there. Oh pure transcendence!
Oh Orpheus sings! Oh tall tree in the ear!
And all things hushed. Yet even in that silence
a new beginning, beckoning, change appeared.

--"Sonnets to Orpheus," Rainer Maria Rilke

The back of the pendant is unglazed, signed in stamps. Each pendant is formed and stamped by hand, and as such, there may be small differences between that shown above and the one you receive.

Approx. measurements: 22mm by 27mm (.9" by 1.1")

The pendant is suspended from a handmade jump ring, in either solid copper (as shown in the photos), or silver filled. If you'd like the silver option, please say so in your "Notes to Seller" during checkout.

This listing is for the pendant only, sans chain. Please check the "chains" section of my shop for some lovely handmade options:
