Made in the British Isles. This large, sterling silver mandala measures 3.6cm, or a little under one and a half inches in diameter and weighs approximately 30g (which is slightly over one ounce). It was hand carved from wax which had a mould taken from it. It was then cast in solid silver and given a hallmark, by the Assay Office, to prove the purity of the silver. The mandala was then set with a 6mm natural peridot.
The mandala pendant was coated with rhodium (a metal rarer than platinum), a two-tone green patina was then added to the recesses. The mandala is supplied on a waxed cotton cord in its own gift box.

Mandalas (Sanskrit for circles) in Hindu and Buddhist Tantrism, are symbolic diagrams used in the performance of sacred rites and as an instrument of meditation.
In Jungian psychology a mandala as a symbol in a dream, represented the dreamer's search for completeness and self-unity.

To create this piece I have utilized some of the oldest skills still used in jewellery and silversmithing. The original mandala was hand carved from wax before having a mould taken from it. It was cast in solid sterling silver which was then reworked, for several hours, using traditional Goldsmiths' tools, to produce a very fine detail. It was then given a hallmark, by the assay office, to prove the purity of the silver.

Wearing a piece of Adria Ashley’s fine jewellery identifies you as someone who can appreciate fine handicraft. All of my silver jewellery is made from solid Sterling Silver (silver with a purity of at least 92.5%). It does not contain any lead or other harmful materials.
I do my best to insure all the raw materials I use have been sourced responsibly and I always price my work honestly.

All my pieces are handmade in a small workshop in the countryside and shipped to collectors across the world using insured couriers.
