This custom made sterling silver pendant was handmade by Laura in Melbourne as a private commission for Henrietta.
It is made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver and the surface has a brushed matt finish while some of the beads are highly polished. For more information on why it’s important to use reclaimed/recycled silver click here.
Henrietta and I met on a crisp Melbourne morning at the Rose Street Market in Fitzroy where I have a weekend stall. She was on the hunt for a gift for her oldest friend, Ruby. We began chatting and she told me the two of them had been friends since they were in primary school and although they had both lived in different countries for more than 10 years, they had stayed in touch throughout their travels. Now, almost 35 years since they first met, Henrietta wanted to give her something really unique to mark her 40th birthday. She was drawn to Matzee’s Diamond Ring and loved the way it sparkled.
I suggested I could make something like this, but as a pendant. I did a small sketch and developed the idea of making the pendant from 40 beads (to symbolise Ruby’s 40th birthday) and highly polishing the larger beads. We chatted about the details and this custom made pendant was born. It was one of those great custom commissions that is a joy to create.
Thanks Henrietta and HaPpY BiRtHdAy Ruby!

“In a world awash with jewellery, I have so rarely found a jeweller who places so much importance on minimising the environmental impact of their work as Laura does with Coral Covey. Brilliant!”
“I was introduced to Coral Covey through friends as I was looking for a gift for my sister, Cara. Not being a wearer of jewellery myself I loved the elegance of Laura’s work. I purchased the Folded Form Earrings and my sister loved them! I highly recommend Coral Covey for anybody looking for unique design with expert craftsmanship”
