A golden landscape from a autumn in full colour whilst deep in the valley walls two homes slowly loose the afternoon light at County Gate, Exmoor.
County Gate, as the name suggests is where Devon and West Somerset meet. Its location offers great views over the East Lyn valley and Doone Country. There are several energetic walks from here into Doone Country or down to the coast.
This gorgeous necklace was made by local artist Debbie Brannen using a blue sunstone cabochon and wire wrapped with 935 Argentium silver, the 18 inch belcher chain is also 935 Argentium silver. the semi-precious blue sunstone catches the light and sparkles.
Every piece of jewellery I make is unique and handcrafted with thought and care. I look at the sea glass or semi-precious gemstone that I want to use and design my wire wrapping around it to show off its best qualities. No two pieces will ever be the exactly the same.
Argentium silver is a brighter whiter silver, less likely to tarnish and is hypoallergenic, the pendant is also hallmarked by the London assay office. The hallmark is for 925 silver as in the UK as yet we do not have a 935 hallmark but the assay office is working on it.
Debbie Brannen is a member of the Argentium Silver Guild.
The pendant measures approx 6cm x 2.5cm including the bail.
The necklace will be sent to you in a beautiful jewellery box stamped with the Argentium Silver logo.

This just has to be my favourite place in the world – peaceful, beautiful with abundant wildlife to enjoy. Early morning walk across the moors, skylarks singing and the Exmoor ponies were just around the corner. Can’t wait to be back in October. This was in April.
