Third Eye pendant featuring custom inlay of high-fired porcelain combined with Jade set in 18K Gold Heavy-Plated Sterling Silver (925). Artist Marta Pia handmakes this in the U.S, and due to the nature of this process some pieces might present some small variations, which in our opinion makes them even more unique and personal. Chain: 18 Gold-Filled. 

Jade or “yu” (meaning precious stone) as it is called in China, refers to a fine-grained, mineral aggregate composed of  highly inter-grown, interlocking crystals of Jadeite and/or Nephrite. It was long believed for centuries that Jade was but one gemstone. In 1863 that changed and the two types of jade were recognized. Jadeite is found in Myanmar, Guatemala, Japan and the US, whereas Nephrite is found in Central Asia, Russia, Canada, Mexico and the US among others. It is said that in Chinese tradition, Jade symbolized all five virtues of humanity: Wisdom, Compassion, Justice, Modesty and Courage, therefore often symbols of these virtues were carved into pieces of Jade.

 

Artist Marta Pia comes from a Spanish-Danish family with a soft spot for various creative outlets such as painting, sculpture and industrial design.  With a respect and appreciation of the challenge and beauty of artisanal manufacturing, she strives to create works where their final outcome is  based on materials and forms rather than on their final purpose, thinking about the meaning that objects acquire depending on their context, and value their ability to serve their purpose while looking timeless and effortless.
