Amazingly detailed, small, openwork pendant, carefully designed, hand carved by me and then made in sterling silver. Adorned with a lovely, natural Baltic amber or a different stone of your choice (available stones are visible in one of the photos - please choose from the list while placing your order). This flowing, dynamic design is a part of my collection of symbols celebrating our connection with Nature. Oxidized and polished. Diameter of this pendant is 2,8 cm (1.10 in), total length (including articulated bail) is 3,8 cm (1.49 in).

The pendant depicts the Sun, as the center of our solar system and source of all life (shown here through textured vines and leaves radiating from the center). This pendant is also a subtle form of Wheel of the Year - showing four solar festivals (Equinoxes and Solstices) and fire festivals (Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain) in between. It's like a tiny, weareable version of our small part of the Universe.

This pendant comes with a vegan cord. If you have any questions, please ask.This piece is based on my original artwork - all rights reserved.

My pendant „Lair of visions” was published in AMCAW calendar (Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide) for 2021.  This piece is made of sterling silver, milled sterling sheet, fine silver bezel wire, electroplated gold, three labradorites and two peridots. This pendant was hand sculpted using simple tools. No moulds. Every element was formed from scratch. It’s a combination of sculpting in wet clay, slip painting and dry contruction. Stone settings were soldered after firing. The bail was constructed from milled metal, combined with an ornamental element sculpted in metal clay - the elements were soldered together. This piece is a poetic reminiscence of my strolls and meditations in the forest. Forest and its gifts as a source of vision
Pendant „Sun Godddes" was published in the cycle „The best of 2019” by AMCAW - Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide. The pendant is made of sterling silver and adorned with ambers, hand cut by me and a little bit of gold.  Barbara Cetrangolo Rivolta wrote about this piece: "In a year with many artists creating innovative new work in metal clay, several artists captivated us with their artistic vision and skill. It’s our pleasure to share the inspiring work of these artists in AMCAW’s Best of 2019. We found Anna Mazon’s Sun Goddess pendant to be exceptionally intriguing. The construction of the piece - sculpted in sterling silver, highlighted in gold, and set with amber - allows for the interplay of light and dark in an endlessly fascinating way. Anna’s strong interest in Mother Nature, mythology, ancient cultures and literature all come into play. She says of her piece, "Sun is the center of our solar system, the source of light, warmth and all life. Tireless wanderers travel around it - planets, comets, asteroids on their never-ending elliptical trails. Sun is there for us every day, with its ancient wisdom and nourishing energy. It is also a vortex of fiery chaos, inferno of ongoing nuclear fusion in its center - powerful and terrifying." Anna is known for her strong but light-weight metal clay construction techniques. She stretches herself in this work by setting the beautiful translucent amber—chosen for its color and unusual pattern—on the reverse of the piece in order to backlight it."
