Rhyolite Gemstone and Sterling Silver Necklace and Earrings

in: Necklace



Rhyolite Gemstone and Sterling Silver Necklace and Earrings This necklace has the most gorgeous Rhyolite gemstones, a volcanic, ingenous rock. The stone's mossy greens are reminiscent of a rainforest. But, what intrigued me the most was the pop of orange and yellows! I used a mixture of 15 x 30mm ovals and 12mm coin style beads - interspersed with sterling silver spacers - to create the gemstone chain for this necklace 

While browsing through my ever growing stash of cabochons, my eyes immediately went to this tear drop shaped stone - with oranges, yellows, and greens. Unfortunately, I have had this in my bead cabinet for so long, that I am unable to identify this gemstone... I assume it is some sort of agate. However, bezeled in a simple sterling silver setting, it perfectly complements the Rhyolite.

The necklace measures approximately 21" in length, not including the 1 1/2" sterling silver, extender chain. It fastens securely with a sterling silver, swivel lobster clasp. The complete pendant drop measures approximately 1 5/8"  in length. I have added a simple pair of earrings this listing, comprised of two faceted Rhyolite faceted rounds, flanked by tiny, sterling silver beads. The earrings measure 1 3/8" in length, and hang securely from sterling silver, leverback style ear wires. 

This is beautiful statement necklace/earrings set, for one who loves these exquisite colors of nature in their gemstones!

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.
