This handcrafted statement pendant features the most stunning piece of blue Lapis Lazuli, that shimmers with its gold flecks in the light. The stone itself measures approximately 23mm by 23mm, and the pendant setting has been made with a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a sterling silver bail, a fine silver needle bezel around the stone, sterling silver twisted trims. I have also hand-sawed a crescent moon cut-out into the back of the pendant, both as an extra detail and also so the stone can have contact with the skin when the pendant is worn. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidised in parts for contrast, polished to a high shine, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, long layering necklace, or anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!
