This fish brooch decorated with a mother-of-pearl, was entirely handmade and it is a unique piece.
This brooch, measuring approximately 4.5 cm by 3.5 cm, was made of pure silver (950/1000 with state stamp). The total weight of the jewel is 5 gr (without the fine stone). The clasp of the spindle is a silver ball joint, the needle is made of steel.
This designer jewel was forged by hand by the workshop of Galadrielle, a jewellery craftsman. To shape this original creation, the jeweller first made sketches and drawings before assembling silver plates and wires that were cut and welded together. To make the jewel precious and shiny, it has been completely polished by hand.
The brooch is surmounted by a fine stone, mother-of-pearl 2.5 cm by 2 cm.
Mother-of-pearl comes from the inside of some shells of molluscs. Mother-of-pearl is secreted by molluscs to defend itself from an irritating foreign element. Mother-of-pearl has a hardness of 2.5 to 5 on the Mohs scale. It has been used for a long time for decoration, marquetry, jewellery and button making. Mother-of-pearl is part of the gemstone family.
Due to the difference in light and screen settings, the color of the stone may be slightly different from the images.
Art creation made in South Burgundy from Galadrielle's workshop.
