This Lunar Pearl pendant necklace in sterling silver features Sheila’s cup-mark design, delicately hanging from a silver chain. The circular design has a textured finish with a slightly concave centre, hand-enamelled in 'Mill Sands' enamel and set with a pearl in our Orkney workshop.
Thousands of years ago at the Ness of Brodgar our ancestors made little hollows or cup marks in rough rock, perhaps to signify an event or to follow passing time as the moon waxed and waned.
Sheila Fleet took her inspiration from stone carvings from the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney.The rough surface of the rocks is reminiscent of the moon and Sheila Fleet recreated this ancient look through a technique known as reticulation.
Sterling silver with enamel.
Dimensions:3/4" x 3/4"
