“It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen.”
About This Listing
This listing is for a hand-painted clay pendant featuring an intricate gouache seascape inspired by lines from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion. The pendants are finished with two coats of UV-resistant gloss varnish on the front, and left unvarnished on the back so as to highlight the gritty earthen texture of the fired clay. They are signed and dated by the artist on the back. Each pendant measures approximately 1.5 inches in diameter and comes with a 21-inch silver-plated figaro chain. It will be packaged in a decorative Kraft jewelry box with velvety black backing, and accompanied by a printed label detailing the specifications of the piece and including the quotation that inspired it.
Because these pendants are handmade and hand-painted, no two are identical, although all share the same colors and general design. Thus, the pendant you receive may not be exactly the same as the ones highlighted in the photos, but will be its own unique and original work of art.
To ensure a long life for your hand-painted pendant, keep it dry and take care not to drop it or scratch the surface. Dust as needed with a clean microfiber cloth.
In this design, I hoped to capture some sense of the mysterious creation energy Tolkien describes as inhabiting the oceans of his Middle-Earth. Tolkien's legendarium has played a big part in my own strong attachment to seas and oceans, and in this set of tiny ocean worlds tinted sunset, I wanted to pay homage to the way his fantastical seas still eddy around my life, singing.
