A heavily rutilated quartz cabochon, with a bit of hematite included, nesting along the side of the stone. I created the setting for this stone from scratch, hand sawing the shapes of the backplate, and stamping the details in carefully, and with purpose. Tiny bits of silver in half circles were gently soldered onto the top of the plate to create more depth., along with natural oxidization. 14k gold fill wire was added at the top of the pendant as an accent to the hues within the stone. Necklace is 18" sterling silver rope chain, and the pendant is about the size of a quarter.
