Sterling, 14k gold. Commissioned.
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.
hollow bead necklace
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.
