Homebound is a vertical landscape pendant engraved with a scene of a boat sailing away from some coastal rock formations. The rock formations are recessed and oxidised to provide contrast from the other elements of the piece. On the backside of the pendant “Homebound” is engraved in a cursive script. Homebound is available by default on my newest chain styles: Rolo and Snake, but leave me a note with your order and I’ll make it with any chain in the Urban Sterling catalogue.
As a part of the Forsaken Chapter, this piece deals with themes of isolation and abandonment. We don’t know who’s on the boat or where they’re going, just that they have a long journey ahead of them, likely in solitude.
Made to Order:
Do you really want a ring off some dusty shelf in a stock cupboard? I know I don’t. That’s why I ensure all Urban Sterling products are made to order, just for you. Here’s how I run things: when I see that you’ve just placed an order, I immediately notify my casting house in Sydney so they can get your ring started ASAP. Within a week the raw-cast will arrive at my studio, where I’ll start work on it. After I cut, sand, buff, emery, polish, and clean it by hand, it gets placed into a box with your order number in it. I pack the documentation for the piece into an envelope, sign the certificate of authenticity, and wax seal it shut. Then it goes from my studio straight to your home (or nearby post office knowing AusPost). My jewellery is made to reflect your personality and function as an extension of yourself, so it just wouldn’t feel right keeping it in a plastic bag in a dark cupboard.
All US Co. rings are made from 100% sustainably sourced precious metals. I personally guarantee the Argentium silver I use does not cause, support or benefit unlawful conflict, or contribute to human rights abuses or breaches of international law. You can read more about Urban Sterling ethical practices here. As well as on the Argentium website here.
For almost everyone, the default 50cm chain should be fine, however if you want the pendant to sit further down your chest, the 60cm option would be best.
Every Urban Sterling ring is covered by my lifetime warranty guarantee. Your piece will be free from scratches, chips, tarnish, poor finishing, manufacturing faults and breaks, in other words it’ll be perfect. Note that some of my rings may have very slight distressing incorporated into the design, as is typical for handmade products. I personally make every ring by hand and check them thoroughly so it’s unlikely you’ll ever need this warranty, but it’s there for your peace of mind. Also! If you manage to scratch / chip the ring yourself, I offer a free restoration service in-house.
After your order is placed expect to wait around 1-2 weeks for your Homebound to arrive as all Urban Sterling products are handcrafted and made to order. The pendant you receive will be polished 935 Argentium Silver.
