Here is my latest Magic Carpet necklace. I always find the hardest thing is knowing when to stop. Nothing I make is ever perfect in my eyes and so often I have ruined things by not stopping at the right moment. Interestingly both Christian and Islamic traditions both recognise that nothing made by man is ever perfect. Complex woven rugs and the Lindisfarne Gospels to name two examples reputedly have deliberate errors visible only to their creators.
This pendant is inspired by Magic Carpets infused with memories and dreams of places visited and people seen, in the past and in the future. I hope that it’s wearer will infuse it with their own Magical Memories and Dreams.
These pendants are all cloisonné enamel on fine silver and set in highly polished sterling silver. Each one is unique. They have flecks of pure gold foil and some are enhanced with set semi precious stones. The two blue ones were a commission as a special birthday present for twins and have been engraved with a dedication on the reverse. Contact me if you are interested in commissioning me to make your own Magic Carpet pendant or earrings.
