This gorgeous, woven-wire pendant is composed of a large, pyritized ammonite fossil, with open cavities (showing the internal compartments), lovingly cradled in solid Sterling silver wire. Recycled watch parts, were elaborately woven onto the frame, accented by a polished pyrite sphere, set in stacked Sterling silver bead caps. The outer shell of the ammonite on the back of the pendant was left in it's natural state & is almost completely shielded by a recycled pocket watch plate on the back. The wire was also coated in a clear lacquer to resist tarnish & preserve the aged finish of the piece over time. The pendant comes suspended on your choice of chain & measures 72x55x21mm (2.8″ x 2.2″ x 0.8″). Ammonites are extinct marine molluscs, most closely related to modern octopi, squids and, to a lesser extent, nautiloids. The word, “ammonite”, was inspired by the spiral shape of their shells. Originally, they were called ammonis cornua (“horns of Ammon”) because this Egyptian god was typically depicted wearing ram's horns. It is thought ammonites inhabited ancient shallow seas & succumbed to the same mass extinction responsible for the demise of the dinosaurs.
