Sodalite Gemstone and Pierced Sterling Silver Pendant

in: Necklace



Sodalite Gemstone and Pierced Sterling Silver Pendant - This is a new-to-me technique called piercing.  A design is placed on the sterling silver, and each tiny whole is hand sawn.  I have been using a jeweler's saw for years now - but never to this level of exacting specifications! After each opening is sawn, great care is given to sanding and polishing Every. Single. Space. :)  I believe Zen is achieved through repetition!  

I have set a gorgeous faceted Sodalite gemstone in the center of the pendant - I don't think the pictures do justice - such a gorgeous deep, deep blue!  

The pendant measures 2" in length by 1 3/8" at its widest point.  The pendant hangs from a beautiful oxidized sterling silver,  18" box chain. The sterling silver has been finished with a beautiful matte patina.

This beautiful necklace will easily become a favorite!

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

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.
