Pendant: Rhodonite wrapped in Copper with Faceted Brown Chalcedony

Details

Here is a wonderfully gemmy, square-cut cabochon of rhodonite, encased in a pair of hand-wrought copper frames - enclosed around the edges with handmade Viking-knit copper, hung with a tiny 4mm x 6mm (1/6" x 1/4") faceted drop of brown chalcedony and topped with a hand-woven copper bail that's wrapped up with the tails of the stout copper framing. This can be worn facing front or back; the stone's patterns, actually impurities of black manganese oxide in dendritic veins, are naturally different on either side - and the chalcedony is suspended from the side labelled "front" in the photos above - but otherwise this pendant is identical on either side, with the small exceptions of only the "front" frame being covered in fine-wire coiling and in how the stouter wrapping lays around the bail. It's truly a reversible piece.

The pendant is 61mm (2+3/8") high including the bail and chalcedony drop, by 35mm (1+3/8") wide by 11mm (7/16") thick; it hangs on a 62cm (24+1/4") solid copper ball chain of 3.2mm (1/8") girth. If you like, an extra connector - with or without additional ball-links - can be included so that you might vary the length of the chain to adapt to your clothing neckline.

More Info

This comes gift-wrapped in a brown kraft box bearing my brand label, with cotton box filler and designer tissue imprinted with pen-and-ink dragonfly images, and black raffia-style glossy ribbon. The ribbon will be loosely tied, so that you may inspect your purchase before presenting as a gift.

One-of-a-kind; this piece was handmade by me in my home studio, here in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness area, in the east-facing foothills of the Mendocino mountains in northern California.

I take deep pride in my work; each piece is infused with its own personality by the time I've finished it, even if it bears some similarity to another I've made earlier. Because these creations have life for me, I will gladly repair anything untoward that may happen to it in the normal course of wearing. Just email me at mineralandmetal@rtr.net, and let me know of any problems which I'd be most eager to fix. I want you to enjoy your wearable art I've made, and to gift it with pride.

All required sales taxes are paid by me, they are included in the purchase price; the price you see, plus applicable shipping, is all that you'll pay at checkout.

.And if you're going to be in either Tehama or Shasta county, contact me and we can arrange to meet with hand-delivery and, if it’s not a special trip for me, I’ll reduce your price by the amount of shipping (which is automatically computed by the website).
