Botanical Series #1 - Variscite - Sterling Silver Pendant - Necklace
This collection was inspired by the ironwork that was created during the Art Nouveau period in European cities during the turn of the 20th century. I designed the stones and metalwork to characterize abstract, asymmetrical, and curvilinear forms found in nature. From the cut and polish of these cabochons, to the hand drawn organic shaped elements. Six pieces in all in this series.
Stone, cabochon: Variscite
Necklace strand: Sterling Silver
Pendant: I hand cut and polished this beautiful Variscite cabochon. I hand cut the sterling silver leaves and individually soldered them to the setting. A hand formed and hammered sterling bail was soldered to the back. I also hand cut a leaf pattern on the back of the pendant.
All connections are soldered for strength and longevity.
Patina/oxidation has been added to the pendant.
Necklace, sterling silver, oval beveled cable chain, 20 inches in length,
Pendant: 2 1/4 inches in length - 1 inch in width.
I do my best to take accurate color pictures. Please keep in mind that colors will vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
