Say hello to 'Volturq' - A strong and powerful Artisan Piece made in our studio - here in Manchester, UK.
Sometimes, gemstones just speak to you and when you hold them they feel right together - this is exactly how Volturq was inspired!
Volturq began it's adventure as a single sheet of copper and two gemstones which in themselves are artisan pieces as they were hand shaped and hand polished by our highly talented lapidarist.
We just love the bohemian mixture of copper and turquoise so this had to be our choice of metal and after nearly 3 hours of hammering, texturing, forming, soldering, pickling and polishing - all by hand I might add, Volturq was born!
Suspended on a dainty Sterling Silver Chain of 22", you can be rest assured that Volturq will be the main attraction.
This piece is more definitely a statement piece and as it is a one-of-a-kind piece, you can be rest assured that no other person, in the whole world, will have the same piece as you.

COPPER ♥ Grounding ♥ Healing ♥ Copper has historically been associated as the body metal, and is considered a grounding metal for the human body and spirit.
Spiritually, copper is also considered a metal capable of storing healing properties holistically, as well as having protective properties. This is why it was used in ancient times for totems and talismans.
By wearing copper, some wearers of copper jewelry find it relieves the symptoms of arthritis and circulation problems.
Whoever Volturq speaks to, we are sure they will love this artisan pendant as much as we loved creating it.
