Hand carved, contemporary drop pendant made from BURMITE. This is a striking pendant that is all about the lovely material and its internal structure and colour variation.
Look at the photos and watch the brief video - you'll appreciate the lovely, sensual nature of this material..... and it feels as good as it looks!
This material has been used by the Chinese to make jewellery since around 200BCE. They believe that it is a symbol of courage and bravery and that it contains the soul of a tiger.
Burmite is a resin which has been formed during periods when mountains have been forced upward - the resultant high pressure and temperatures alter the structure of the resin and create the fascinating internal fractures and waves. These are not faults, rather a reflection of the process that has created this gorgeous material.
