Birdseye Rhyolite Cabochon, Prong Set, Artisan Made, Sterling Silver Necklace, One of a kind
This hand fabricated necklace features a custom cut Birdseye Rhyolite cabochon. The colors in the stone are very earthy, with a lot of interest and variation. I've done a partial bezel/ prong setting, and added some embellishments on the bottom plate that reflect the shapes in the stone. There is a small, healed crack that is only visible in bright light, such as my photo lights!
I’ve used traditional silver-smithing techniques to fabricate this necklace.
The pendant, including the bale is 1-3/4" long by almost 1" at the widest. (45mm x 25mm)
The sterling silver chain is adjustable from 16 to 18” and finished with a sterling lobster clasp.
The sterling has been oxidized and sanded to a satin finish.
