sterling silver

A powerful talisman about love, divine guidance, and living with intention.


The Story

A tiny boat is formed by hand in wax, then cast in sterling silver, a sturdy base from which to build a home. The outside of the vessel has been carefully buffed and polished, softly reflecting the love and beauty to be seen in the world. The inside is carved, resembling hand hewn wood, an interior space modeled and shaped to safely carry its precious cargo. Nestled securely within the vessel is a solitaire rough diamond bead. A single stone, a passenger in its essence embarking on her own path. Above, two rings stand side by side symbolizing togetherness because one is never alone on her journey. From this togetherness a sterling silver curves down like outstretched arms, towards the lovingly prepared boat and its brilliant passenger, guiding her on her sweet voyage. High above on the chain hangs a small labradorite gemstone. As she looks back or gazes ahead, the iridescent play of colors serve as a guide beckoning her to sit in the bloom of the present moment. 

Story by Kristin, "the bloom of the present moment" by Thoreau


The charm started as a block of wax. I carved the pendant by hand, then we cast it in sterling silver in our studio using the lost wax casting method. The solid sterling silver charm hangs from a sterling silver chain, and is secured by a sterling silver lobster clasp. A 1.5 carat diamond bead is set in the pendant, while a small labradorite beads is suspended on the chain. The necklace is given an oxidized, satin finish.

The story is included in the box.
