Forever in Bloom

The elegant flowers of the calla lily have the ability to remain in bloom year round, making them the perfect symbol of enduring beauty. This necklace translates that beauty into an even more lasting medium: handcrafted copper.

Metal artist Alexis Archibald forms recycled copper with a rich patina into the familiar, coiled shape of the calla blossom. Inside is another copper petal that is hand enameled a dusty shade of turquoise. The pendant is suspended from a black, nylon-coated sterling filled wire, which gives it a fresh, contemporary look. Handmade in California.

Comments about UncommonGoods Calla Lily Pendant Necklace:

A tad pricy for a copper pendant on basic necklace cording. That said, it has great craftsmanship, and it was the perfect gift to my wife for our 7th anniversary (traditionally, copper & wool), also because calla lilies were the flowers used in our wedding.

Comments about UncommonGoods Calla Lily Pendant Necklace:

I purchased the pendant for my wife's birthday. I was very excited about it, but when she opened it, she didn't appear particularly thrilled. A "swing and a miss" for me. It currently sits in the box on her dresser.

My wife's personal preferences aren't a great basis for whether you should buy this pendant. Frankly, I found it to be an elegant, versatile, and unique item, but then I'm also not the one who would be wearing it.

While I'm (evidently) not a great judge of my wife's tastes, and can attest it is of high quality and very solid. Maybe even a touch heavy. It was also larger than I expected (dimensions might be online and I missed them -- I ordered it in a hurry). I'd estimate it is approximately 2 inches long. The chain is a black metal cable with a clasp, which also feels of very good quality. (In the event any of you enjoy fishing, it feels a lot like a leader with a jewelry clasp.) It can be readily switched out with a different chain, but given the weight and color, the substitute would have to be fairly robust.

Bottom line: if you like how the pendant looks, the price is appropriate for you, and you aren't discouraged by the (in my opinion) relatively large size, there is no reason not to purchase this item.

      Great piece.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was on time and product was in good condition. I really liked the box, but was not crazy about the 'sock' that it came in. Hardly a complaint, more of a comment. Maybe tissue paper (recycled of course) would present better. Either way, won't stop me from buying from the site again for sure. Thanks!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Calla Lily Pendant Necklace:

        This was an impulse buy as a surprise gift for my wife. She has strong opinions about jewelry so I rarely pick something out without pre-approval. No worries this time - she loves it! And others do too. Even strangers have stopped her to ask about the calla lily necklace. Highly recommended.

        Appearance note: the appearance is slightly different in our received product from the pictures online. Specifically, the flower portion is more open than in the pictures online. We like it better this way because it helps highlight the inside of the calla lily.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Calla Lily Pendant Necklace:

        The pendant was even better looking than I thought it would be. The only issue I had with it was that it was hard to assemble the three parts together. I'm sure that's because it is hand made and each piece is a little different. Overall I am very satisfied with the necklace.

            Beautiful pendant; wonderful gift; black wire leaves something to be desired, and will be replaced with something better/more comfortable. Somewhat more expensive than anticipated, but still a nice gift.
