This solid silver pendant was originally designed to depict a wild hare, although it is also a life-like representation of a many types of pet rabbit.
Swift, secretive hares can be found in their different guises all over the world and play an important role in the faith, folk law and fables of many cultures. Rabbits and hares were once regarded as animals sacred to Aphrodite & Eros and were presented as gifts of love.
This sterling silver rabbit/hare measures 5cm, or two inches long. It weighs approximately 30g (which is around an ounce), not including the chain and has its tawny orange eyes made from amber coloured madeira topaz cabochons. It was hand carved from wax which had a mould taken from it and was then cast in solid silver and given a hallmark by the assay office.
To emphasize the details of the carving it was given an antique appearance by oxidising and then satin finishing the pendant. The whole piece was then coated with a layer of clear lacquer to help preserve the colouration.
The silver pendant has been hung from a sturdy 24 inch long chain with a substantial clasp.
This pendant is supplied in its own gift box.
