Pendant Description

This gorgeous pendant features a carved freshwater pearl with a silver alligator emerging from the bottom. It’s part of the Galatea collection we carry here at Joseph Jewelry, and it’s a great example of how this designer is constantly finding new ways to push the limits of jewelry making to develop new and innovative designs. You can view this and other similar pieces anytime when you stop by our Bellevue, WA showroom.

Carved Pearl

The main body of this pendant is composed of an 11mm fresh water pearl, and it’s linked to the chain by a minimal bale that attaches to the top of the pearl. Moving down the sides, the pearl is carved, with jagged, zig-zag grooves representing cracks of varying lengths. These all start in different places, but they end at the uneven bottom surface, which is where the alligator emerges.

The carved cracks in the pearl make clear that it’s meant to represent an egg, and the relatively large size of the pearl allows for the addition of these details and the subtle shaping while still maintaining a satisfying size for the piece overall. Pendants

Emerging Aligator

The alligator that emerges from the bottom of the pearl is made from sterling silver, and it’s also carved in exquisite detail. The bumpy skin, elegant claws, and curling body are accented by black antiquing that help to highlight the design of the engraving. The face of the alligator in particular is perfectly detailed to create its intense gaze, and the dynamic curves of its body give the distinct impression of motion.

This is a unique, contemporary design that takes traditional materials and combines them in new and innovative ways. The contrast between the soft sheen of the pearl and the complex texture of the silver brings more depth to the design, and it also helps to reinforce its organic overtones.
