From Mother Eagle’s Garden, Midwinter ’12 Collection.
...All pumpkins that grow in Mother Eagle's garden are bewitched, and can be transformed into any object, if the proper incantations are spoken...
This is a hand-embroidered silk pumpkin set into a custom-made birch wood pendant. The pumpkin is stitched in very fine, hand-dyed silk threads and is worked on to fine vintage cotton, which has been lightly dyed using organic tea, giving a lovely antiqued mottle.

The pumpkin has been stitched in rich variegated silk, in satin stitch with a curved silk bullion knot vine, and set amongst variegated cotton French knots. It is mounted into a beautiful circular pendant which has been custom made to my specifications. It completely encloses the embroidery, in sturdy but light-weight and sustainably sourced birch wood.
The wood has been treated in a non-toxic natural wax by my own hand, and is decorated with burnt dots. It measures 48mm (plus 15mm for the tab and bail) in diameter and is 5mm thick. It hangs on a 29.5” antique brass finished copper chain. This chain is of the highest quality - every single link of this chain has been soldered. This, along with the bail and lobster clasp, are lead and nickel free, and chosen to provide you with a lifetime’s wear
