Fused Lichen Lepidicroscite Quartz Red Cognac Diamond Hinged Pendant
Lepidocroscite is a mouthful. Its quartz with all kinds of fun other minerals trapped inside in beautiful patterns. Continuing using fused 18 karat gold on sterling silver, I added to the back plate behind the stone showing off the gold and black through the transparency of the stone. Truly spectacular play against the clear quartz and the red inclusions. Hinges still allow for fun movement in the piece and an accent of red cognac diamond is flush set on the fused gold wedge top section.
This pendant is 3.25" long by .5" wide. The lepidocrocite is 14x22mm with the diamond at 1.5mm. 16", 18" or 20" 1.5mm cable oxidized chain is available.
Hand fabricated in sterling silver with 18 karat gold with solid construction.
