This is a beautiful hand sculpted Sterling Silver Orchid Pendant using the Lost Wax Method.
This is my signature Potinara Susan Fender Orchid found on the front cover of the book, The World's Most Beautiful Orchids put together by Greg Allikas & Ned Nash.
This Orchid caught my eye several years ago because of the velvet ripples in the lip or labellum and to me, it is the most beautiful orchid in the world. If you have time, Goggle the title and just look at the Orchid on the front cover...it's breathtaking.
I have added an 18" Sterling Silver 2.6mm Byzantine Chain which makes a beautiful statement on it's own.
It's just a beautiful piece and words can't describe the depth of detail that was added when sculpting this piece. Pictures do not do it justice.
Pendant Size: 2" wide x 2"
I have just finished the matching Ring, Earrings and two Bracelets to this Cattleya Orchid Collection.
Update: This piece was a Limited Edition and was replaced by my New Cattleya Orchid Pendant & Ring. Cattleya Orchid Necklace
