Sonoran Sunset with Carnelian
This is a rare natural gemstone mined only in Sonora Mexico. This is a stunning combination of Chrysocola & Cuprite. Bolts of black iron run through it so the other colors pop even more!
I hand fabricated this setting with fine and Argentium sterling silver. Then I riveted the top piece to be an anchfor or for the 6mm carnelian setting. I added lots of hammer texture to the round discs for added interest. The sterling chain is adjustable to 22″. The point of the stone tapers to about 1/8″.
This very bold statement piece commands attention!
