Horse Canyon Agate and Silver Pendant

Beautiful swirls of pale blues, greens, creamy whites, yellows and oranges blossom against translucent pale grey in this magnificent piece of Horse Canyon (California) Agate. Brushed fine silver mirrors the shape of the “color blossoms” inside the stone.

Trinity – Part 3

Trinity – Part 3

The inner part of the Trinity is a shadowbox pendant with a rounded brushed copper top with a pearl nestled in its opening. Both the pearl and the copper have a sheen that almost glows.

A lovely standout piece on it’s own. The combination of copper, silver and pearl is captivating. As the copper matures, its color will deepen and shift as it responds to its environment.

A truly organic piece.

The copper inner shadowbox pendant is 1/2 inch wide and 1 1/4 inches long, and fits inside of the silver outer pendant. Both are about 1/4 inch deep. Shown with a 7-strand 16″ silver omega necklace.

Fine polished silver makes up the outer hollow form of the Trinity pendant. The piece is gorgeous without the inner pendant as well, and may be worn on its own for a completely different look.

The chain that passes through the pendant can be seen, showing the process of how the piece is strung.

Modern, clean line. Stunning!

This part of the Trinity is approximately 1 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches long and about 1/4 inch deep. The back of the pendant is signed on brushed silver. Shown with a 7-strand 16″ silver omega necklace.

Trinity

A polished fine silver hollow form embraces a separate satin-finished copper-topped shadowbox with a pearl in this stunning, bold and very feminine piece. Flowing shapes and differing textures and materials are visually and tactilely appealing. The outer pendant is flat and smooth while the inner copper and silver pendant is buffed with a rounded, convex surface. As the copper on the inner pendant matures, it will respond to the environment and its color will shift and deepen.

I call this Trinity because two pieces come together to make the third unique piece. Each piece may be worn individually for three distinctly different effects. Stay tuned for each form to be posted as individual pendants in parts 2 and 3.

Altogether, the two pendants as a whole are approximately 1 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches long. The copper inner shadowbox pendant is 1/2 inch wide and 1 1/4 inches long, and fits inside of the silver outer pendant. Both are about 1/4 inch deep. The back of the pendant is signed on brushed silver. Shown with a 7-strand 16″ silver omega necklace.

Cocktail Bracelet with Peridot

Cocktail Bracelet with Peridot

“Silver Lace” bracelet wraps low on the wrist while it blossoms open to reveal a faceted yellow green peridot stone. Playful yet elegant!

Inspired by my original silver and gold cocktail bracelet and the peridot silver lace ring.

Peridot is supposed to be an excellent stone for abundance and prosperity. It is also a healing stone, especially for people who are already healers themselves. No matter what, it is a beautiful stone!

One-of-a-kind. Signed.
