Egg with Legs pearl necklace.
This necklace has been a long time coming. The idea came about just as soon as I started painting eggs with legs during the first lockdown of 2020.
I struggled to find the right kind of pearl for the job- I wanted a lumpen, imperfect gem but I still wanted it to retain an orb, egg-like shape with the occasional pasture of smooth curvature.
It took 10 months for me to find the right one and a further 2 or so years to finally set the legs in a way that pleased me.
The legs were carved in wax and cast in 925 sterling silver.
Pendant: 3.5cm x 1.8cm x 1.8cm
