Large Bronze Caddis Pendant
A deliciously bold & scintillating amulet inspired by the texture of caddis cases and their protective properties. Made in bronze measuring 4.5cm across, with a 28 inch sterling silver chain.
From the buried treasures of Pompeii to jewels found in meteorites and asteroids falling to earth over millennia; Jade Mellor wants to evoke the feeling of uncovering gems that have practically become part of the landscape through the wearing of time but originate from another world or civilisation.
The techniques she continues to develop push this medium and her further research into natural history, ancient civilisation and passion for nature's jewels result in exciting colours and textures in processes inspired by fossilisation and mineral structures.
