1 1/8 inch diameter hand carved, hand painted gourd charm laid in sterling silver on an 18 inch string of grey and white pearls.
A songbird is symbolic of anyone who consciously looks for the best in all people, places, and things. This one-of-a-kind piece of hand carved, hand painted gourd laid in silver and stung with pearls is meant to uplift your spirit like the songbirds in the carving. Deep red paint counters the ladylike string of pearls combining traditional design with a one of a kind handmade piece from the mountains of South America. A collectors item for sure!
This necklace is the epitome of slow fashion, sustainable, and fair trade. It takes many days for one artisan to carve the gourd. And over a week to complete the necklace entirely. When you buy our Paradiso jewelry, you are supporting to artisans worldwide.
