The sterling silver pendant features a detailed, Japanese-inspired wave design framed by clean, modern lines. In this pendant, I tried to capture that moment between the intense building of a wave’s energy and the tumbling release. I painstakingly carved it in wax, then cast it in sterling silver.

There’s something about Japanese prints of the Edo period that captivates me—especially the printmakers’ depictions of the ocean. Their bold style seems particularly suited to crashing waves; they capture so well the surging energy, the motion. What draws me to these prints is the way the clean lines and controlled design somehow create emotional depth—it seems almost contradictory, but in such a nice way.

I have started to see waves differently—I have started to really notice the moment just as the wave begins to break, as it begins to throw over all those thousands of fingers of water, where it seems almost paused at its apex.

The pendant hangs from an 18 inch chain with a handmade clasp, which I have accentuated with a small, stormy labradorite. I’ve given the piece a soft, satin shine, with a rich patina in the recesses to emphasize the details and to give the piece an heirloom quality. Let me know if you'd like a different chain length.

This item will arrive beautifully packaged.

Please let me know if you would like me to wrap it as well and add a hand-written notecard. Leave me a note in "notes to seller" telling me what you'd like the card to say.
