The Scherzo tiny pendants are named after the western classical music term for a small, joyful part of a larger work. Like it, they are both a lighthearted, smily interlude among the more structured pendants of the Layers of Nostalgia collection.
Scherzo 1 is a playful, almost-squared small pendant celebrating the mountains. It is imperfectly shaped like a child's drawing, with a miniature Italian landscape made from layers of silver, oxidezed silver and copper, with a small handle and a cotton, thin, brown cord to hold it. The cord is in. 15.7 (cm.40) but we can make it the length you like.
We made Scherzo 1 in October 2020 but it is too small to imprint the date on its back so we will add a small card to its box.
It has been made to last but it is more delicate than industrial jewelry. We have applied a protective layer on the surface to preserve its colours but they will slightly change somehow over the time as part of a natural process.
We use recycled silver as much as we can, to reduce the environmental impact of our work and for ethical reasons. Recycled silver has exactly the same characteristics and value of mined silver but it is obtained from old jewelry or silverware. From our personal point of view, it adds value to the jewelry we make.
Important: you may polish the piece with a conventional silverware cloth, taking on account that the darker parts may fade if you rub them.
Made of oxidized sterling 925 silver and copper. Brown cotton necklace with silver closure.
