Handcrafted Jewelry
  • Sisters Choice Pendant


      When you make jewelry your family always wants some for their holiday gift.  This one was selected by my Sister from over 30 different options.  Inside Oakwood we call it “Sister’s Choice”.

    All of Oakwood’s jewelry is Sterling Silver hand finished and highly polished.  The result is, all of the pieces surfaces are highly reflective, in some cases, as good or better than a mirror.  However, instead of being flat like a mirror the pendant surface are warped and twisted.  This makes them very difficult to photograph, because they reflect everything and many artifacts show up in the pictures.  The dark areas you see in the left photo is an image of the camera lens hitting a twisted highly reflective surface.  In the center photo, the piece has been twisted and canted to minimize the image of the camera lens, but you still can see the lens in different areas of the part.  As you walk across a room wearing the pendant, it’s reflecting surfaces that are already warped and twisted, are shifting, changing and reflecting back different images and colors from all over the room.  It the photo on the far right (a different part) you can see what happens when we allow all the room colors to reflect off the part.  In this picture, we took no care to achieve a great picture we just took the picture.  You can imagine how these pieces look in a room with colored lights as you might have at a dance, on stage or at Christmas. 

    Also available in earrings.
