Description

Petrified wood is a beautiful fossil with its  ancient cells replaced by silica.  Further, if the petrified wood is opalizad, the stone has a beautiful opalescent sheen.  I cut and polished this free form stone to bring out the strong lines of the ancient wood . Then, I hand stamped and pierced the back plate with a beautiful flower design, which shows both sides of this incredible stone.  After that, I created the chain using organic links that I designed, interspersed with corrugated beads and ending with a handmade clasp.  Finally, I applied a warm, brown patina and hand polished the piece to bring out the highlights. 

Details:

  • Hand Cut Opalized Petrified Wood
  • Corrugated Copper Barrel Beads
  • Copper Wire
  • Copper Sheet
  • Chain length: 18 inches (48 cm)
  • Pendant length: 3 inches (8 cm)

I love fashioning unique and individual pieces using ancient, hand crafted techniques: for example, cutting my own stones and creating my own chain and components from sheet and wire.

No two pieces from The Last Link are ever exactly the same!
