This hand fabricated sterling silver "Scale Veil" is intended for a wedding ceremony; with 10 scales that move independently but never leave each others side, like the lovers they adorn. My inspiration for this piece came from the endangered animal, the pangolin. I was inspired by their plight and beauty to craft this piece and bring awareness to my community. This species is the world's only scaly mammal; they curl into a ball to use their scales as protection. The 'Scale Veil' is representative of protecting oneself from the outer world. There are 10 scales on the veil for the decades of commitment you are embarking on together. Every scale represents a year, gradually getting larger to show growth of your bond. During the ceremony the veil is flipped to the back of the head, a metaphor for letting your partner into your protected world, and removing any barriers between you.
