Description

This stunning cabochon has brilliant turquoise and green rivers of color running through the dark quartz matrix.  I wanted to set it off in an equally stunning and unique way. So, I surrounded the flowing, hand cut bezel with dramatic, hand corrugated copper. Then, I pierced the back plate in a delicate flower pattern to allow the beautiful back of the stone to shine.  Afterwards, I added organic leaves and vines to form the bail and the bottom decoration.     This necklace can be worn with the corrugated side OR the pierced back showing – two looks for the price of one!  I used silver lined turquoise triangle beads in the  handcrafted chain to accent fabulous rivers of chrysocolla. Finally, I applied a warm brown patina and hand buffed to bring out the dramatic texture and sealed it to protect the finish.

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!
