Pele, Hawaiian volcano goddess. Her fires create and destroy the land itself, forming new volcanoes that erupt, cover the land with lava, and then begin the cycle anew. The 'Pele Bracelet' original form was created through sand casting technique using recycled silver. Molten silver represents lava flowing onto the land - creating the Earth on which we live. We capture this unique form through the interaction of metal and sand. - Pendants measure 17mm length / 15mm width - Chain length 16~18cm - 18K gold vermeil * - hand crafted in 925 silver with 18k gold plating. - 14K gold filled chain and findings - Handmade in Taiwan (Each item is handmade to order.

The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewelry apart from gold plated pieces.
