Beautifully detailed, sculptural pendant, handmade of bronze, copper, silver, adorned with peridots and sapphires.
This pendant was inspired by Slavic folklore. Leszy/Leshy is a woodland spirit in Slavic mythology who protects wild animals and forests (also a bit of a trickster - misguiding people or helping them). He is roughly analogous to the Woodwose of Western Europe and the Basajaun of the Basque Country. I depicted him with his club - symbol of his lordship of the forest.
Pendant is 7,9 cm long and it comes with a strand of faceted olivines (circa 50 cm long).
This piece won second place in prestigious Saul Bell Design Award competition in metal clay category.
It was exhibited during a gala in Albuquerque and in Las Vegas. The pendant was also published in a competition's cataloque and in "The Crafts Report", March 2014.
