Theme Challenge - Tasty

This piece was created for the Wire Artisan Guild's monthly challenge theme for January - "Tasty" - yes, I am rather late! Being such a sweet tooth, I immediately thought of delicious treats such as baklava, halva, gulab jamun - all the good stuff that contain these amazing ingredients. With these amazing delicacies in mind, I created Rosewater and Pistachio.

A handforged connector created from a hammered sterling silver frame is the central component in this design. To this are secured teensy rondelles of rhodolite garnet and slightly larger faceted buttons of peridot. Beneath this is a decadent drop featuring luminous AAA grade imperial topaz rondelles, and more peridot and garnet, whilst the base of this column of gemstones is a smooth and sensuous rose quartz briolette. Additional sections of imperial quartz, peridot and garnet are featured to either side of the hand forged connector. A textured chain and Balinese silver toggle complete this delicious design.

You will find this design tempting you in my Etsy store.
