Nordic Filigree Jewelry

Silver Filigree Nordic Wayfinder Pendant


  • Details
    Like points of the compass, I designed this piece in honor of the ancient wayfiinders of Scandinavia. Even in this modern world, we can all use a little help navigating life's journeys, and this piece does it with style and grace. The techniques I used for this piece celebrate the ancient arts of metalworking, from forming tiny bits of silver into balls, then fusing them to a surface of sheet silver until they join permanently. This technique was used in many cultures across the world, employing only good eyesight and wood fires or charcoal braziers. I am lucky today to have a few modern additions, like a gas torch and eye magnifiers! But the process is essentially the same - it is a fine, labor intensive art form that produces beautiful designs with the spheres of metal and wire attached to silver.

    This piece is hollow - the top is domed, and the back flat. I created a hinged hanging bail to add a little swing as its worn. The teardrop shaped compass points hopefully never steer you off course!
