Enjoy wearing our double-sided heron and crab pendant. It is inspired by our lovely Chesapeake Bay and life here in the marshes. Great Blue Herons are large gentle birds that are delightful to watch. Blue crabs are an iconic image for many people that love water. Our coastlines hold a heart-felt allure for many people whether you are fortunate enough to be able to spend time here or simply love nature. If you can’t be in nature appreciating her beauty and diversity, at least you can keep her close to your heart. I intend my lookingglass pendants to hold deeper meanings for those that wear them. May yours add inspiration and a lightness to your step. This images are also available in prints, clocks and on my note cards.
The heron and crab pendant celebrates air and water.
The inspiration for my lookinglass line comes from a Buddhist icon necklace brought back to me from Indonesia by a friend. I loved the two sided box design and notion of jewelry containing an added level of significance. Every pendent is slightly unique thru my combination of paints, patterned papers and imagery. Lookinglass jewelry is handcrafted; sandwiching two archival prints of my images between beveled glass, securing these with copper foil and soldering it all together. The two sides gives the wearer a choice of imagery to face outward or for images backed with text- it is nice to hold that saying close to your heart.
Handcrafted jewelry; Double sided pendant: The heron image is backed with an image of a crab, between two 1. x1. inch pieces of beveled glass. You can wear it either way. Each has a silver eighteen inch chain and glass bead detail. It is packaged in a little silk bag with a “Lookinglass” card.
