Mod Garnet Pendant

Mod Garnet Pendant

This pendant is made of silver and red garnet. I love playing with organic shapes. This piece mixes traditional Native American hollow form shadowbox design with a throughly modern shape.

Mod! Groovy! Very mid-century early 60s feel.

The back of the garnet is left open for more light to pass through.

Approximately 2 inches wide, 2 inches tall, a little less than a 1/4 inch deep. One of it’s kind. Signed on the back.

Silver Shield Pendant

Silver Shield Pendant

A very striking and modern piece, and may be worn with just about anything—from a t-shirt, to a cashmere turtleneck, to a silk v-neck dress—whatever you can imagine!

This piece is hand-carved and a hollow form. The carvings catch the light for some sparkle, and the concave shape in the middle of the pendant is very reflective. The weight of the piece is comfortable and maintains a satisfying substantiality.

The shield is approximately 3 inches long, half an inch wide, and about a half inch deep.

Hand-carved Hollow Form Silver Ring

Hand-carved Hollow Form Silver Ring

This ring is modern and bold. It is a hollow form with hand cut designs to reveal the inside of the ring, which has been blackened for a dramatic background. The designs allow light to pass through, so the ring always has a bit of shadow and shine that is never static.

May be worn everyday – or perfect to dress up a mod 60s dress, velvet pants or a velvet jacket. Whatever you decide, this ring will look very chic.

The ring size is adjustable, so it will fit a size 7 (or nearly size 7) finger.
