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.
Fabricated Sterling and lapis lazuli. Approximately 1 inch.
This is a brushed finish, giving it a bit of patina. I thought it suited this piece well.
The image below shows the articulation. I like to give the pieces movement.
This is the sketch I started with.
Fabricated Sterling. Approximately 3/4″ long.
Fabricated Sterling, 14k gold bezel, and garnet. This is one from a while ago. I think it has a medieval vibe going.
Out of the light the stone looks black. Now there’s a metaphor for you.
Just finished. Been at this one for a couple of years. Thirty-eight beads; about 15 minutes to make each one. The four large beads are about 9/16″, the small ones are about 3/8″. The total length is just under 19″. The beads are hollow, but it still has a little over 2 1/4 oz. of silver.
There are four large beads, six medium sized, and 28 of the smaller ones.
A lobster claw clasp holds it securely. It’s held together with a vinyl seven strand stainless wire, doubled.
It fits like a loose choker.
