Gatsby Blues Pendant (1)
This one-of-a-kind pendant features a very high quality square cabochon of Lapis Lazuli. It is an incredibly deep blue with small golden speckled inclusions. The stone has been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. With an oxidised background (blackened) which makes this Blue pop. The pendant also has a small separately hanging little hand forged concho beneath the main pendant. The design was inspired by my enduring love of elegant Art Deco’s sleek geometric forms combined with some Art Nouveau long sinuous organic lines all combined with a little romance.
This piece was incredibly enjoyable to create. Layering, hand-stamping, sawing, texturing, soldering, and polishing are just some of the steps taken to bring it to life. Each process done with care and accuracy to create a wearable work that will last a lifetime.
Dimensions – This pendant measures approximately 45mm high X 24mm wide (at its highest and widest points) Created entirely from reclaimed and recycled Sterling Silver, The Gauge (thickness) of the backing silver is 1.2mm making the piece strong and durable.
Lapis lazuli or lapis for short, is a deep-blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense colour. This lapis was mined at the ancient deposits of Afghanistan. Found in limestone in the Kokcha River valley of Badakhshan province in north-eastern Afghanistan, where the Sar-e-Sang mine deposits have been worked for more than 6,000 years.
