Progress: Completed Larimar

The completed Larimar pendant wrapped in silver wire.

This week I finished the larimar pendant project.

Last week, I had created the structural pieces that hold the stone in place. All that was left to do this week was to add the detailed elements that pull the piece together.

A close up of the detail work on the pendant.

I used a mix of techniques to give the pendant more texture and variety.

One of my goals with this piece was to not obscure much of the stone. The wrap I created on this pendant is meant to show off the natural beauty and coloration of the Larimar.

I try to keep things simple on the back side as well.

The wire on the back of the pendant is as minimal as I could manage. The wire is meant to support the stone, not to be too our or overbearing. This is a challenging line to walk with my art. I am also trying to find that balance between the beauty of the wire and the beauty of the stone.
