Amazingly detailed, openwork Moon hare pendant, carefully designed, hand carved by me and then made in sterling silver. Adorned with a lovely, natural moonstone (8 mm) - you can choose a moonstone with a blue shine or one with a pearl white shine (see further photos). It is a part of my collection of symbols celebrating our connection with Nature. Oxidized and polished. Total length (including night themed, articulated bail) is 5 cm (1.96 in). It's width in the widest place is 2 cm (0.78 in). It's very subtle and super detailed.
The motif of Moon gazing hare or simply a Moon hare is present in many cultures all around the world - British Isles, China, India, many countries of continental Europe, North and South America and also in some tales from African folklore. Hares are often associated with vitality, life force, fertility and rebirth, but also magic, travelling between the worlds and mysteries of the night. They are really feisty, fierce, independent creatures (if you've ever seen boxing hares you surely know what I mean). My hare was looking at the amazing full Moon, peacefully enjoying the beauty of Nature, but he heard something, and quickly turns towards you, to check what is the source of the sound. He definitely is a hare with an attitude. Extraordinary, magical creature. I sculpted all the details of this little sculpture by hand - every part of the hare's body, tiny moths, mushrooms and strands of mysterious mist.
This pendant is oxidized, polished and comes with a vegan cord. This piece is based on my original artwork - all rights reserved.
This pendant is available with two different stones, which you can see in one of the photos - white moonstone with a blue sheen and white moonstone with a pearl white sheen.
If you would like to have a pendant like this one, but with a different stone let me know. I can make one just for you! If you have any questions, please ask.
