Hand carved drop pendant made from BURMITE.
SUBLIME is a marvellous piece with a ton of character. It shows all of the features that make this material so special. Internal fractures, organic material inclusions and the very special golden copper colour.
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.
Look at the photos and watch the brief video - it's worth the few moments and will give you a complete picture of this pendant.
