Mystical Moth Pendant with Watermelon Tourmaline & Labradorite in Sterling Silver
Is it obvious that I have a moth obsession? This is another beauty, and probably my favorite so far. The moth is created with sterling silver sheet, a hydraulic press and an impression die. After pressing, I saw it out and solder it to a backing of 24 gauge sterling sheet, then sawed out again. Above it is a rose cut watermelon tourmaline cab set in a smooth bezel. 2 tiny labradorite cabs adorn each wing. The pendant is hung from an 18" bright sterling silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur & polished to accentuate the highlights and bring dimension to the piece.
