Brushed silver carries red coral punctuated by the deep black in the shadowbox. The cut out at the top of the pendant flows with the overall shape of the tear and the coral. Holes in the side of the pendant allow the necklace to be seen through the front.
Coral and silver are a classic southwestern combination of materials, shown here with a new twist.
Entirely hand-crafted, this pendant is approximately a two inches long by an inch-and-a-half wide and a quarter inch deep. The coral is one-of-a-kind, as is the entire piece. Shown with a sixteen-inch silver omega necklace (separate from the pendant). Hand-signed on the back.

Blue Topaz is connected to the planets Jupiter and Uranus and is supposedly a soothing and clarifying stone for people under the sun signs Sagittarius and Aquarius. Being blue, it helps to calm the mind and is useful in clear communication.
5/8″ in diameter 1/4″ deep. Signed. One-of-a-kind.
Another one of my “Parent and Child” pieces, this necklace is comprised of two highly polished silver and copper shadowbox beads. The copper is reddened by heating to a very high temperature, and depending on the angle and the lighting, may look purplish maroon to a deep orange red.
The beads may be worn together, or separately, allowing for three different looks.
Signed on the back. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind hollow form.
