Petal & Flower Pendants
Petal jewellery inspired by nature and it's sensual beauty. These stunning pendants are modelled from real petals using white clay and fired in a kiln to 1055 degrees so they are durable, yet sensitively decorated using oxides and glazes producing various texture and surface qualities which beautifully reflect the light. The bluebell pendants are made from porcelain so fired to 1260 degrees giving a more translucent effect with the beautiful shades of violet blue.
Please read below for more detailed information on these unique petal pendants.
To purchase select your choice of Pendant from the drop down menu below using the image number as a reference.
To order your bespoke piece of petal jewellery please select the corresponding pendant shape from the drop down menu above using the image number as a reference. Each pendant is made and glazed as closely to the photograph as possible but there will always be subtle differences due to the nature of glazing in the kiln - this is another aspect of how each piece is authentic and unique.
Each pendant measures between 5-7 cm at the widest point and comes with a silver plated 18" inch chain. If you would prefer a different size or chain colour please email me after purchase so we can tailor your order.
I also take commissions on jewellery, so if there is a particular flower you admire in your garden that you would like replicated into unique ceramic jewellery, please email me with photographs of your flower or petal so I can see if I can source that same flower to work from. We can then discuss commission options further.
Purchases take up to 2 weeks to satisfy including postage time (commissions longer due to sourcing flowers). Jewellery is presented in a black jewellery box and the price includes an 18" silver plated chain necklace and postage. The photographic examples above are based on the following flowers:
1. Rose Petals (approx 1.5 cm in length)
2. Calla Lillies (approx 2cm in length)
3. Magnolia Petals (approx 3.5 cm in length)
4. Blossom Petals (approx each 1.5 cm in length)
Delivery and After Care:
Please Note: when you purchase an item made by Sonya there will always be subtle differences in the shape, size and colour finish of the piece because each leaf used is different from the next, and kiln firings also have varying effects, hence her work is individual, authentic and unique. Sonya does always endeavour to match your item as closely as possible to the image selection above.
Each piece will be carefully wrapped for postage with plenty of bubble wrap for protection and in the case of jewellery, each piece comes with it's own presentation box. If there are any issues when you receive an item in the post, please take a photograph of the evidence when opened, showing the wrapping and envelope as found on delivery to you and email firstname.lastname@example.org. Without this timely evidence of postage damage Sonya will be unable to offer you a refund or make a replacement piece. Every care is taken however to ensure breakages do not happen and a suitable currier is selected to minimise this happening.
All glazes used in production are food safe. Sonya recommends that although the glazes can withstand dishwashing it is advisable to hand wash the items to increase their longevity. Please be thoughtful about how you care for your dish or jewellery as although these pieces are fired to over 1000 degrees in a kiln, there are not as hard as some manufactured ceramics you may be used to washing or caring for. Platters and dishes should be treated much like glass plates and jewellery will respond to the same care as Swarovski crystal so jewellery items will tend to bounce on carpet (!) but crack if dropped on a tiled floor or basin. Sonya therefore recommends that you put on your jewellery in a carpeted room. Refunds will only be given if a piece is proven to be damaged on delivery as explained above. Each item is scrutinised before it is sent out you making sure it adheres to Sonya's high standards of finish.
Sonya hopes you enjoy wearing or using your unique ceramic leaf art!
