Abstract Sterling Silver, Tourmaline, and Rhodolite Necklace
This pendant is first sculpted in wax – then cast in sterling silver – in a flowy, abstract, open-worked shape. Its organic feel is inspired by twigs and roots. The medallion style of the pendant makes it very comfortable to wear, and the open design makes it lightweight for its size.
The piece is cast in sterling silver using lost wax casting. This process means each cast piece is one-of-a-kind and cannot be repeated.
After casting, two petite, faceted pink tourmalines and a larger rhodolite have been flush set into the silver. The finished pendant is paired with a sterling silver chain and a hand-forged hook clasp.
Dimensions of pendant: 2″ long x 1″ wide
Length of chain: 18″
