With its highly polished circular form and undulating surface Natus Pendant is an expression of perfection and imperfection that invites the evocation of a personal story.
Jewellery designer Jenny Sweetnam imagines the intangible and physical maternal bond immortalised in this solid gold pendant.
Each order is completely bespoke and the form created reveals both a child’s distinct fingertip shape and deliberately unrefined surface qualities born of the designers hand casting technique. The tactile contours of a fingertip realised in relief, invite connection through touch and the elongated bail with its weighty chain define a modern silhouette.
The pendant design invites you to order a suitable configuration , between 1 and 3 fingertip forms can be suspended from the elongated bail. (Please get in touch for multiples beyond 3). The chain/bail aspect can be omitted from the design in which case configuration of fingertip forms onto an existing chain is possible.
From the designer
“I find this powerful to wear, both materially speaking with the weight of the gold and conceptually the sense of the visceral connections it evokes for me. I am never without it.”
– Jenny Sweetnam
Solid 9 carat yellow gold, fairtrade. UK hallmarked.
