This is a Purpurite Gem Stone set in Sterling silver. The backplate or surround of the stone has been designed to make use of the negative space in style and feel. A patina has been applied. A 20″ sterling chain is included. The piece measures approximately 23x35mm square..
I get my stone materials and cut, shape and polish them myself. I procure the gold or silver metal flat or as rolled wire or tubes and use it to shape and create my designs.
Hand-crafted art/jewelry are one-of-a-kind pieces and generally are not duplicated exactly. Stones vary, measurements vary. I can collaborate with you if you would like to have a piece made for you or for someone else. Sterling silver may be polished with any number of good silver cleaner/polish products. The applied patina will naturally wear over time. Natural stones are fragile and may break if dropped, heated directly, stepped on, etc. Care should be taken.
