This pendant is the first in a series exploring the circle. It was made by both casting and hand fabricating silver and gold. I mined and cut the opal, which has its origins in Spencer, Idaho. The Bertrandite (opalized fluorite) originated in the western deserts of Utah and was also cut by me.
Sterling Silver cast into the carved out bone of a cuttlefish, carved, and hand-fabricated with 18 karat yellow gold bezels. The pendant features a 6 carat artisan-faceted kyanite, emerald and mexican fire opal set in the bail, and an 18" long 3 mm wide herringbone chain. The pendant measures approximately 2.25" long by .4" wide by .25" deep.
Hand-fabricated silver that was diamond-cut and velvet textured then set with an altered rectangle cut iron tiger-eye cabochon (cut by me with rough from Australia) and a gold bezel set blue topaz cabochon.
