Chrysocolla Multi Stone Pendant
This pendant features a beautiful, large, kite shaped Chrysocolla. It is a bright turquoise blue, with a darker blue in the pattern. It is accented by a round 3mm Aquamarine and a round 5mm Freshwater Pearl. Silver granules and Filigree are the finishing touch. It measures almost 1.5 inches from top to bottom, and is 7/8ths of an inch wide, and it comes on a sterling silver 18 inch double chain. All the work is done using hand tools such as pliers and a torch.
Did you know: Chrysocolla get its vivid color from copper? And it is often found with other minerals, like malachite, mixed in or nearby. This stone was mined in Arizona.
Handmade items are special. They represent a slice of the artist's time, emotion, and passion. I usually sketch my designs in pencil, working and reworking until it is just what I'm looking for.
