lapis pendant 

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.

Another view.

And one more, showing how it is worn suspended from a chain.  Let me know what you think.
