About this design:

This pendant was hand formed from a stoneware clay, bisque fired, glazed with different shades of blues and then fired again in a high fire.

The bail is handmade of sterling silver wire. I made this beautiful necklace using Amazonite Faceted beads. I individually wrapped each bead securely and meticulously with sterling silver wire to form a chain. The chain is finished with a hand crafted sterling silver eye and hook clasp. The elegant feeling of this necklace is fantastic. You can dress it up or down... I hope you will love it as much as I do.

Necklace is 17-3/4" long. Pendant measures approx. 1.75"dia.

Components:

Amazonite, Sterling Silver

    Wish I wasn’t so biased in my color preferences. I love fall colors. I would love to see this pendant with lapis and feldspath, or bronzite.

    Great group of pendants.
