So what a crazy mix of natural stone and hand flamed boro art glass beads. I instantly fell in love with this combination! Strangely they were not planned out but I found the combo by accidentally laying the two projects next to each other.
This is by far the largest natural stone I have bezeled in sterling silver- wow what a statement this piece makes. I found this amazing stone which really struck home as it is mined in Delta Utah- It's a Wood Agate with rich bronze and uranium yellow tans. I instantly fell in love with it and the dynamic shape-
I metalsimthed the stone into a sterling bezel with a Golden Sapphire 5mm gem. It measures 65mm long by 33 mm wide- very dramatic.The boro beads are all hand wire wrapped together and I finished the piece with a hand fabricated guitar pick clasp with a lighter citrine 6 mm stone. the piece has been oxidized to create a aged finish which really adds some flare to the piece.
The necklace is adjustable to 17-18 inches and is such a unique piece to add to your collection.
