This handmade sterling silver pendant has a pierced design featuring Bulrushes, which are often found at the edge of rivers and Broads within the Norfolk Broads National Park. The design was created by saw piercing the silver by hand, to suggest the shape of the bulrushes in sketch form, holding the design within the metal as an outline. This design carries full UK Hallmarks for 925 Sterling Silver.
Bulrushes are one of the signature designs within my Design in Sketch collection. I wanted these designs to reflect the architectural simplicity of nature using the fewest shapes possible. The forms are designed to allow the wearer to change the appearance of the design with whatever appears behind it as a way to personalise the sketch design to make it your own.
All my designs at Helen Cross Jewellery are inspired byNorfolk, 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.
