Product Description

This is one of my newer hand-sculpted pieces.  The main stone is a beautiful blue Azurite.  The owl is carved by me out of the metals.  The branch as a pink Opal, Amethyst, & black Opal gemstones as accents.  The owl's wings have Tsavorite Garnets as accents.  The owl's eyes are Sapphires.  The pendant/broach has 22K gold accents.  I created this piece as a pendant or broach so it has versatility. The piece will come with a silver snake chain that measures 16 inches in length.

The pendant is hand sculpted by me.  I use a Precious Metal Clay blend that allows the pendant 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.
