This small Lunar pendant necklace in sterling silver features Sheila’s textured cup-mark design, delicately hanging from a silver curb chain. The slightly concave design is beautifully finished in 'Lichen' enamel. The pendant piece measures approximately 13mm in diameter with a 15mm drop.
Thousands of years ago at the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney, people carved hollows or cup-marks of various sizes in rough rock, perhaps to signify an event or to follow the passage of time as the moon waxed and waned. Sheila first sketched the idea behind this collection in 2012 while visiting the Orkney Museum in Kirkwall, where some of these carvings can be seen. Sheila’s designs are textured like the surface of rock and enamelled in a variety of colours.
