A stunning necklace for someone who loves the unorthodox and the unexpected, who thinks and lives outside of the box.  

A simply amazing stone...this is simbricite, a rare mineral that has appeared in a section of fossil ammonite.  This large cabochon was created at Gary Wilson's lapidary in Tucson, and it is truly extraordinary.  The golden shimmer of the simbricite is framed with a fine metallic line of pyrite with expresso brown beyond...a masterwork of nature.

I've given this unusual stone an equally unusual setting: an offset abstraction of layered sterling silver and brass, combining hammered and heat distressed elements.  All were shaped and refined with simple tools by hand, heavily oxidized and finished with a satin shine.  The slightly offset asymmetry of the setting gives this pendant a decidedly contemporary, yet timeless feel.  

The 6mm leather cord is a pleasing natural brown with matte surface.  I fabricated the distressed sterling silver terminals and S hook closure by hand.  

Stunning, dramatic, like a ritual ornament of an offworld desert dweller...utterly one of a kind.

SIZE:  Cord length with closure:  18 1/4".  Pendant dimensions: 2 3/4" x 1 3/8" x 3/8".

CARE:   To clean, wipe the cabochon with a soft, damp cloth.  Wipe the silver likewise, or use a silver polishing cloth to brighten.  To restore a matte finish, gently buff silver with a dry kitchen scrubbing pad, carefully avoiding the stone.

PRESENTATION:  This necklace will come to you beautifully giftwrapped.  See my shop policies below for details.
