lapis pendent

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.

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.

Forged Sterling pendant.  About 2 inches long.  It’s a single piece, with an added embellishment (a riveted jump ring).

I found an odd shaped scrap piece in my sweeps drawer and started hammering on it.  This is what came of it.

You can get an idea of its size here.  It’s almost 2/10 of an inch thick.

This is the reverse.

Here’s the detail of the jump ring.  I wasn’t thinking this would be for suspending it, rather, I just liked the look of it.

And two more.  Not much of a story with this one.  I was simply messing around with a form in my head and this is what it gave me.  I like it.

Silver Cross with Citrine

IMG_8987

This heavy Greek, or Morning Star, cross is fabricated silver. The cross itself is just over an inch long, with the complete piece being just under 2 inches. The citrine stone is set in a silver bezel, with a thin disk of 14k gold behind it for a bit more reflectivity.

The double bail was a different take for me. I think it works. The piece is relatively small, and heavy. The citrine cabochon is only 4mm. I think it is the smallest bezel set I’ve done.

A few more views. It’s mostly what I had in mind.
