This necklace was inspired by a set of miniature spinning and weaving tools from the North Coast of Peru. In Andean cultures, the evidence of textiles predates ceramics and were important for clothing as well as use in ritual and political life. A tool similar to this piece would have been used by the Chimu around the 13th to 15th centuries. This .999 fine silver pendant has been oxidized and textured to add the character of the original artifact. It is 3/4 inch wide with a width of just under an inch at the cross bars, and about 1 and 1/2 inches tall. It hangs from 22 inches of oxidized sterling silver cable chain and closes with a sterling silver lobster claw and a sterling silver jump ring. I have also designed earrings to coordinate with this pendant, which are shown in the photo above. Both pieces were made from silver precious metal clay.

More information about the earrings (sold separately), and the spinning tool I also made, can be seen in my Etsy shop at http://www.dklStudios.etsy.com.

I will send your new necklace in a gift box. The cost of shipping also covers insurance when shipped within the United States.
