The Peacock nest was commissioned by a friend who wanted to gift his wife with something as unusual and lovely as she. It is made with 22ga Sterling silver wire, and black peacock pearls, which is fitting, because legend says all peacocks despise the metal gold. Whether it is superstition or simply vanity, against the sterling, the contrast is striking. Photography can only capture so much of these pearls’ beauty: they gleam with a sort of unearthly green/golden/purple radiance, and are mesmerizing to behold, much like their namesake. $50.
No two nests are exactly alike, but if you’d like a nest similar to The Peacock’s Nest, I do accept commissions.
