Rhodonite and Rose Quartz Pendant Necklace


Rhodonite and Rose Quartz Pendant Necklace - Challenges. I have been following several artists online who have made challenges for themselves. The challenge I posed to myself was to craft as many pieces of jewelry that I could using some of the most beautiful Rose Quartz beads! I had three strands - marquise, oblong, and square. Whenever I create with pink, I channel Julia Roberts sitting in her chair while Dolly Parton does her pre-wedding hair, declaring "Pink is my signature color".

The sterling silver pendant features a 25 x 16 mm Rhodonite Gemstone Cabochon - complete with the nature-made streaks of black that first drew me to this stone. Bezel set in sterling silver, I added two 4mm black Onyx cabochons and four sterling silver orbs to the pendant design. 

The chain of these necklace features coordinating Rhodonite coin-style beads, flanked in sterling silver, and interspersed with Rose Quartz squares. The pictures do not do these beads justice - pale, soft, and sparkly from the inclusions. Please be sure to zoom in on the pictures!

The necklace closes securely with a simple clasp, which I forged from heavy gauge sterling silver and soldered close for added strength. The opposing ring is also soldered for strength and security.  The necklace has weight - but is not too heavy to wear. The necklace measures 20" in length, and the complete Rhodonite pendant measures 1 3/4" in length.

I also made two pair of coordinating earrings also available in my shop here  or https://www.pattivan.com/product/rose-quartz-and-sterling-silver-earrings.

All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

This is beautiful statement necklace to be enjoyed for years to come!

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
