River Pebble Pendant

A 2½" (6cm) river pebble surrounded by silver wire and hanging from a leather thong, but would look equally good on a silver chain.
.
Working with stones and pebbles is very satisfying. Cold to the touch to begin with, it soon warms up when held in your hand and this transfer of heat releases the ancient energy buried deep in the pebble, filling one with wonder at Nature’s capability of producing such beauty.
.
Inland pebbles (river pebbles of river rock) are usually found along the shores of large rivers and lakes. These pebbles are formed as the flowing water washes over rock particles on the bottom and along the shores of the river.
.
The smoothness and color of river pebbles depends on several factors, such as the composition of the soil of the river banks, the chemical characteristics of the water, and the speed of the current. Because river current is gentler than the ocean waves, river pebbles are usually not as smooth as beach pebbles. The most common colors of river rock are black, grey, green, brown and white.
.
From my “Earth Range” of ©Afrika Street Jewellery and inspired by Nature.
.
I use silver solder to attach and secure all findings and clasps.
