Talisman

An organic "urn" shape - hand forged and then wirewrapped - captures high quality gemstones - a marquis-shaped focal of stormy sea blue sapphire is capped by two trios of gems - AAA turquoise and iolite, while more iolite rondelles grace the curves of the pendant. A fringe of graduated toning gems dangle from the base of the pendant. Matching turquoise rondelles secure a textured chain to the pendant; the chain is finished with a sterling silver "S" clasp. The entire design was then oxidised and rubbed back selectively.

The pendant measures 42mm or 1.6" in height and 28mm or 1.1" at the widest point, while the chain measures 47 1/2cm or 20 3/4" in length.
