I'm finally getting around to photographing the new work I've completed for the shop this summer! I'm looking forward to getting some new items up on the site by the end of this week.
I have been trying to branch out and do more multi-stone pendants and add in more beaded items. I started with beads, and they have always been my first love...and I feel like my vision is coming back to a place where the beads meet the metalwork.
This piece, is a stunning example of Congo Malachite! The stone was hand-cut by an artisan lapidary and she captured the fantastic natural pattern of the stone. I absolutely love this piece! I really wrestled with adding a beaded necklace to the pendant, but the stone is so stunning and beautiful all it's own, I didn't want to detract from it's natural appeal.
