Fabricated Sterling and lapis cabochon. A little over an inch long.
This is a piece from a while back. I was looking through some of my previous work to find some I could use as gifts, and ran across this again. I had forgotten about it. A single piece serves as the bail and holds the stone. It articulates at the rivet that holds it and the horseshoe shaped wire. I seem to include movement in many of the pieces.
This close up shows the details. The lapis is a nice piece with a gold fleck (not so visible here) near the center.
I’m trying to show the scale here.
And one more, showing how it is worn suspended from a chain. Let me know what you think.
