This claw shaped pendant is set with one of the first lot of vintage buttons I ever bought in an Arundel antiques market. I was stuck by the emerald green colour which is what made me think of the Indian tiger claw design.
I found this unusual pebble on a Cornish beach and designed the necklace around it. The stone has not been polished at all and was set in it's natural state along side raindrop shaped silver nuggets.
This piece is inspired by Venice; it's ancient opulence, it's gondolas, the melting pot of moorish, byzantine and gothic architecture and it's colourful history. The yellow starburst is a vintage enamelled glass button.
