“The stones cause change, but they also lure. Are they luring something in to those who touch them?”
Inspired by The Borden Dispatches ™ by Cherie Priest, the Badali Jewelry artists have designed and created the pendant worn by Abigail Borden set with one of the infamous pieces of sea glass found in Fall River, Massachusetts. Skillfully crafted in your choice of precious metals with a variety of finishes. Choose from sterling silver, antiqued sterling silver, ruthenium plated sterling silver, dark bronze, white bronze, yellow bronze or antiqued bronze. The ruthenium plating is a surface treatment that will eventually wear away over time. How quickly a surface treatment will wear away is dependent on the daily wear the item is exposed to. Each necklace is carefully hand finished and inspected for the highest quality by our staff. The Sea Glass Pendant is officially licensed as The Borden Dispatches jewelry with the author.
The sea glass of Fall River, Massachusetts is not what it appears to be. Those who come into contact with the innocent looking pieces of green sea glass seem to lose their minds. It just so happens that Abigail Borden, Lizzie Borden's step-mother, was known to wear a pendant set with one of these beautiful pieces of sea glass - right up until Lizzie took up her axe.
The design for the Borden Dispatches sea glass pendant features curling ribbons of native seaweed and the tentacles of a creature from the oceans depths. The pendant holds a faceted trapezoid shaped piece of simulated green sea glass. The stone measures 20 mm (just over 3/4") along the top, 10 mm (3/8") along the bottom and 12 mm (just under 1/2") along the sides.
The Lovecraftian pendant measures approximately 46 mm (1 3/4") long including the bail, 51.2 mm (1/2") at the widest point and 7.1 mm ( ) thick at the stone. The pendant weighs approximately 16.6 grams in sterling silver, approximately 13.8 grams in bronze. The back of the pendant is textured and stamped with our makers mark and copyright symbol. The back of the silver pendant is stamped STER (sterling), ensuring our jewelry is made of the finest metals.
Choose from a 24" long stainless steel rope chain or a 24" black leather cord. A 20" long 1.2mm sterling silver box chain is available for an additional $25.00.
