For those of you who love to travel, who want to carry a piece of home around with you, or are just collectors of maps, this sterling pendant features a map of Florence Italy from an antique world atlas.

The map is preserved in a handmade recycled sterling silver setting behind an archival magnifying resin and hangs from a linen cord with a sterling silver clasp. I have applied a gentle oxidation for an antiqued finish.

Your pendant will come on an 18" linen cord with a sterling clasp, wrapped up for giving in my signature gift box and packaging.

* * Maps are not only my life's passion, but also in my blood. My great grandmother, who is also my namesake, was a single young independent working woman in the late 19th and early 20th century, which was not the norm for ladies at that time. She was employed away from her hometown, as an assistant to a cartographer, in Washington DC. Although I never had the opportunity to meet her, her life and story continue to be a huge inspiration to me.* *

The origin of my map jewelry series comes from my 2004 'Inheritance' series of pendants as published in LARK books "500 Pendants and Lockets" and the "Lark Studio Series: Pendants."
