Botanical Series #5 - Willow Creek Jasper - Sterling Silver and Copper Pendant - Necklace

Description

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.  

Materials:

Sterling Silver and Copper granules
Stone, cabochon: Willow Creek Jasper with tiny speckles of pyrite inclusions
Necklace strand: Sterling Silver 

Technique: 
Pendant: I hand cut and polished this beautiful Willow Creek Jasper cabochon. I hand cut,formed, and forged sterling silver stems with hand torched copper granules that were individually soldered to the setting. I also hand cut an abstract botanical pattern on the back of the pendant. 
All connections are soldered for strength and longevity. 
Patina/oxidation has been added to the pendant. 

Measurements:
Necklace, sterling silver, bead chain, 18 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.
