Here is a new pendant I made during the week. The stone is a gorgeous sunstone. I didn't really know what that is, so I had to look it up. I knew of moonstone and goldstone, but sunstone? It seems it's a very nice stone favoured for jewelry making. When you hold it up against the light, it's really nice translucent and shiny. Really cool.
I have incorporated at least three different techniques: border wrapping for attaching the stone, basket weaving (used in rainbow wrapping), and wire sculpture (for the finishing effects).
A whole lot of 1mm and 0.4mm sterling silver went in the piece. The pendant measures at the widest points 6x3 cm.
It comes on a 45 cm silver chain, and as usual, free shipping for this piece, and included there is a piece of silver polish cloth for maintaining your jewelry at top shine.
