Geometric Enamelled Pendant
This is a somewhat unusual but effective pendant necklace made from a pair of original old Arts & Crafts geometric enamel on copper panels which have been set into modern silver mounts.
The larger square hangs on two short lengths of chain below the similarly patterned smaller panel which connects to the necklace chain.
All the chainwork is in a dark patinated silver, thus matching the black background colour of the squares.
A little unsurprising wear to the blue enamel in parts but nonetheless this is a very worthwhile conversion, making good use of two little pieces of craftsmanship that might otherwise have been lost forever.
The pendant is 4.5 cm in length with the remainder of the necklace chain measuring 46 cm.
