sapphire pendant 

Fabricated Sterling and sapphire. Approximately 3/8 inches. 

This little pendant is for my granddaughter. It’s not her birthstone, but sapphire is the color of her beautiful eyes.  The bail and the three rivets holding it together are 14 karat gold. The rest is Sterling.

hanging garnet and aquamarine pendant 

Fabricated silver, garnet and aquamarine beads.  Approximately 1 1/2 inches.

A derivative of an older design (see the post dated June 11).  This is a commissioned piece.  I think it works.

Out in the sunshine showing a bit of the stones’ depth.

One more, a close up.  All the pieces pivot on the rivet going through the bail.

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.
