Garden Magic - Silver Shovel Necklace // Hand Forged Sterling Silver Shovel on Antiqued Sterling Silver Chain

There's magic and imagination in a miniature version of a beloved tool. Part of me wants to treasure this tiny leaf etched hand shovel because of all the detail and care I put into making it, but another part of me just wants to play with it and see what fun I can have scooping things up with it!

Necklaces have a way of being identifiers and tools have a way of symbolizing how we spend our time. I love the idea of gifting (to yourself or someone else) a tiny tool to celebrate a hobby, career, or passion. It also becomes a fun experience. Try wearing this and see the reactions people have to this unusual and sweet piece. People will want to know more and it's a subject you feel passion for!

This tiny hand shovel is sturdy. I cut a split in the handle and wedged the shovel blade into before fusing the two together. Like all my work, this piece is not cast, but hand formed and therefore one of a kind. The shovel is about 1.5'' long. 

I made this pendant on a 24'' chain that will hang just below most collar bones, but if you would like a 16'' 20'' 24'' or 30'' chain, just let me know in the notes at checkout!
