Product Description

This is one of my newer hand-sculpted pieces. The necklace has a modern theme with hand-mined Rubies from Franklin, NC. The accent stones are deep blue Sapphires.  I name all of my sculpted pieces; this one is entitled 'Lucky'. The necklace is 18 inches in length but can be adjusted to whatever size you need. This design also has 22K gold highlights.

The necklace is hand sculpted by me.  I use a Precious Metal Clay blend that allows the necklace to have the strength of Sterling, but not the tarnishing.  I then hand-carve the designs in the metal and when happy with the design, fire it at high temperatures in a kiln.  This burns out the clay binders and leaves behind pure silver or gold.

The 22K gold added into this design is created with Aura 22.  It is a 22K gold slip I paint on the piece and when it is fired in the kiln the gold molecularly bonds with the Silver to create a 22K plating that will never be able to come off. I then add a patina to the piece that will darken it, turn it a copper color in places, or may even turn the silver rainbow-ish. I will then seal the silver to keep it from ever turning another color.

I am placing my sculpted items on the website, but you will not be able to purchase the item through the website.  As these are all one-of-a-kind I can not run the risk of selling it on the website and at a show. So if you are interested in purchasing one of these items please text me at (404)259-8442 or email me at md_design@rocketmai.com to verify I still have it.  If the item is still available I will send a paypal invoice to you so you may pay for the item online.  I can also re-create certain designs.  They will be a little different every time as I hand-mine my stones and create each design by hand as well.
