Gorge sterling silver pendant
'Gorge' pendant in sterling silver is a fine example of the work that goes into making my stunning designs. The silver has been worked to create a lustrous finish over many many hours, the result an elegant and contemporary pendant. It evokes feelings about our beautiful Australian landscape in particular the gorges of the Flinders Ranges National Park. It is a one off and can never be repeated. Gorge took me approximately 8 months to finish after the initial cast.
Size 44mm long x 27mm on rubber cord, it weighs about 40 grams. I would be happy to change the rubber cord to your preferred material.
If you would like to visit my studio to try it on and to see other pieces available for sale please contact me to arrange a time. My studio is always open by appointment.
This ring has been made using the ancient technique of Cuttlefish casting. The process of Cuttlefish casting involves taking a cuttlefish bone found on the beach, I cut it in two and carve out a basic design, and a funnel. I then rejoin the two halves and melt sterling silver until it is molten and pour it quickly into the mould. The mould crackles and cooks. After cooling I open the mould to see if I have made a successful cast. I then take the crude form back to my bench where I spend many hours filing and emerying before polishing and finally presenting it for sale. Many hidden hours goes into my cuttlefish cast jewellery.
More details about the process including videos can be found on my website http://katrinanewman.com

Even lovelier than in the photos. Quality, beautifully made. Definitely my new favourites. They arrived so quickly. I bought two pairs of earrings and am so glad I did. Will definitely buy more from this seller.
These earrings are even better in real life. I love not only the shape of the earrings, but also the beautiful pattern and marbling effects on the glass. Great purchase overall.
