Pendant Description

This beautiful pendant features a white pearl carved to resemble a cracking egg, with a sterling silver hummingbird emerging from the top. It’s part of the Galatea collection we carry here at Joseph Jewelry, and it’s a wonderful example of the way the designer uses traditional materials in new and innovative ways.

Joseph Jewelry has a long-standing relationship with Galatea, and you can view this and other similar pieces any time by stopping into our Bellevue, WA showroom. These are often creative designs incorporating organic elements, and a gift of one of their smooth, polished pieces is an excellent way to mark a special occasion or milestone in the life of a loved one.

Carved Pearl

The bottom portion of this pendant is composed of a 10.5mm freshwater pearl, the top of which has been carved to resemble a cracking egg. This involves grooves that extend along the sides of the pearl in jagged routes, as well as a completely removed top, producing an uneven surface.

Emerging Hummingbird

Coming up from that uneven top surface is a hummingbird fashioned from sterling silver. Its head, wings and most of its body extend beyond the pearl, rising up to meet the silver chain. The features, eyes and beak are exquisitely detailed, and the wings are spread and uplifted as if the bird is about to take flight. Pendants

The chain passes directly between these uplifted wings, allowing the pendant to connect to the chain without the distraction of a separate bale. This arrangement also orients the pendant to hang with the bird in profile, providing a clear view of all of the dynamic elements at play in the piece.

The simplicity of this design lies in the fact that there are only two materials used, but the way in which they are combined is unique and dynamic. The intricate detailing of both the bird and the egg on all sides adds to the realistic impression the piece generates.
