This handmade sterling silver pendant has a pierced design inspired by sunlight highlighting the ripples on the surface of Braydon Water within the Norfolk Broads National Park. Braydon Water is the largest expanse of open water within the Norfolk Broads and is central to navigation between the Northern and Southern Broads. It also links the Broads to the open sea through the port of Great Yarmouth.


The silver on the upper part of the design has been hand pierced to suggest the ripples on the water in sketch form, and the design has been oxidised to highlight the changes in level of the surface of the piece. This pierced and oxidised design which was made in my Norfolk Studio carries full UK Sterling Silver hallmarks and my unique HMC maker’s mark.

Pierced silver forms are one of the signature styles within my Design in Sketch collection. I wanted these designs to reflect the architectural simplicity of the natural world using the fewest number of shapes possible. Of course, as the designs are handmade and as such every one is a tiny bit different, unlike mass produced items.


All my designs at Helen Cross Jewellery are inspired by Norfolk, either it's stunning countryside or occasionally it's distinctive built forms. I have included a picture of my design influence for this pendant as one of my listing pictures to share with you a little of my process translating Norfolk's character into metal which I hope you will enjoy.
