HOPE ~ Birch Bark & Stained Glass Sacred Heart Amulet

"HOPE" is the centerpiece of this one of a kind pendant. 
( 50% of the sale of this pendant will go to ACLU Nationwide )
I carved the word into a small piece of birch bark from my favorite tree here at Frog Hollow. The word is subtle within the reflecting textures of the stained glass, sometimes not visible, but always there. 
Set under hand cut textured ruby stained glass, a detailed clay Sacred Heart frame with stylized flames or crown, painted with an Italian red accented antiqued gold and antiqued silver finish. Pendant is @ 1 1/8 of an inch wide, @ 2 1/4 inches long including complementing faceted glass bead.
Measuring @ 21 inches long but can be worn shorter. (length can be adjusted upon request when purchased)
Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two helpful cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow. Time and care is spent collecting tiny shards of jewel toned stained glass that I find inspiring and captivating ~
Clay frames are formed around them to pay tribute to the beautiful colors and textures, the history that Stained Glass in Architecture brings to mind. Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All orders are sent beautifully gift packaged in stamped recycled pillow boxes or organza bags, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
