Completed: Fluorite and Pearls

Fluorite chunk with mother of pearl

This is an earlier piece that I’ve made.

I like the way I’ve combined the different stones.

When I was making this piece, I could really envision how the mother of pearl would fit in the curve of the fluorite chunk. I remember it being really fun to bring that vision to life.

The detail work was simple on this piece to let the stones speak for themselves.

I used copper wire that was coated with silver. Over time, the silver coating has begun to wear off. The effect is an antique tarnished wire look.

I think the overall style of the pendant has a beachy vibe to it and the distressed looked of the wire adds to that.

The back shows a simple bail for the necklace to hang from.

From the front of the pendant, the bail- where the necklace hangs from- looks pretty small and obscured. In the photo of the back you can see how the simple bail is set down into the necklace.

I like the simple and elegant style of this pendant.
