Silver Alchemy Necklace with Carnelian & Carved Opal Leaf
The crescent moon was and still is a common alchemy symbol for the metal silver. Here, I've taken a silver crescent shape and stamped it with tiny Moravian star symbols. Within the center, I've soldered a bezel that holds a faceted carnelian cabochon in an amazing shade of deep red/orange. Beneath the moon hangs a glittery wintergreen aura opal carved leaf, also set in a sterling silver bezel. The entire pendant measures 2 1/2" tall & 1" wide. 19" sterling silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur, buffed and polished to bring out highlights, & to give dimension.
