Product Description

This is one of my newer hand-sculpted pieces.  The  purple Ruby gemstone was hand-mined out of Franklin, NC. The pendant/broach has a coral theme but when looking closer at the piece you will see flowers. Inside the coral are Fire Opal, Garnets, and Citrine gemstones.   The rainbow colors are given to the metal by adding a patina to the silver.  I then seal the silver so it can't change colors again. This piece can be worn as a broach or a pendant so there is versatility.  It comes with a rose gold 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.
