As a graphic designer, the ampersand has always held a very special place in my heart. The variety of interpretations by font designers throughout history never cease to amaze!
Inspired by my love of vintage wax seals and typography, I've created this beautiful ampersand design from fine silver precious metal clay. This approximately 3/4" diameter, fine silver [.999] necklace features our exclusive design on an organically shaped round, much like the melted wax spreads out beneath the pressure of the stamp.
Each pendant is hand made using a stamp designed by Sandy, kiln fired, tumbled for strength, and polished. Because each charm is hand made one at a time, each one will have its own character.
This is a great pendant to add charms to! Check out our a la carte section and add a crystal or charm.
Your handcrafted piece arrives in a sweet purple recycled gift box.
Did you know that PMC [precious metal clay] is a recycled eco-friendly product? During photo processing, silver is recovered. That silver is mixed in with a binder making a clay-like material that can be worked, rolled, shaped/formed, stamped, etc. It's then fired, during which the binder burns off, leaving fine silver [99.9% pure].
