Solid sterling silver 925 and velvet ribbon.

Silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
approx 40mm diameter on a 5mm x 1meter ribbon.
Designed and handmade to order in my South East London atelier.
This fabulous Silver Semainier Pendant Necklace is part of the Scheherazade range .
I have long been fascinated by the ‘orientalism’ of the 19th century, and the ‘visions of the East by artists of the West’ as Christie’s defines it.
The Scheherazade capsule collection is my take on it, with pieces of jewellery that are relevant to today’s lifestyles but still convey the charm of the Orient wih its fascinating exoticism, opulence and rituals steeped in time.
Available in solid precious metals, the range focuses on the traditional ‘Semainier’ design and the symbolic number ‘7’.
‘Semainier’ is the French word for ‘week’, and all the pieces are made of 7 individual rings that are tied together like the 7 days of the week.
Whether you like ancient traditions, look for a piece of jewellery with strong symbolism or simply love beautiful adornments that are slightly unusual, then this pendant necklace is for you!
Did you know that the number ‘7’ is considered the luckiest number in most religions and cultures? It is also the spiritual symbol of inner life.
Consider the Scheherazade range as your new talisman jewellery!
It will make a very special and meaningful gift to the wonderful woman in your life.
Oozing style, this pendant necklace will get you noticed and admired each time.
I have used a dark large velvet ribbon instead of a chain, which gives the necklace a Victorian inspired look consistent with the era when the orientalism was in vogue.
It also elevates the whole design, makes the pendant itself really stand out and gives you plenty of styling options.
The black colour goes with any outfit and the adjustable length will flatter any neckline.
Have you noticed that each ring of the pendant feature can actually move and spin? It creates a lovely movement and lightness, with the beaded texture adding extra sparkle.
Wear on its own or pair it with other pieces from the same Scheherazade range for a totally fabulous look.
