A small oval pendant glints pale grey, suspended from a sterling silver chain that has been oxidised black and then rubbed back to a soft grey tone to compliment the pendant.
Immediately recognisable to Canberrans and ex-pats across the globe, Cass Partington's Bus Stop pendant is modelled after the oval window frame with oval window which features in Clem Cummings' iconic concrete bus shelters. Designed in 1974 to tie in with the Brutalist architecture seen in many of Canberra's public institutions, the bus shelters are now beloved by residents and tourists alike.
Available in large and small sizes and in yellow gold, white gold or sterling silver, Partington's delicate pendant reproduces the windows' smooth oval form with oval cutout at one end. Each one is threaded onto a fine, odixised (blackened) sterling silver chain, which runs through the 'window'.
18ct white gold, sterling silver curb chain.
Dimensions of pendand: 10mm x 5mm x 1mm
Chain dimensions: 1.5mm x 50cm
