Sonoran Dendrite Sterling Silver Wire Wrap Pendant Necklace
I love rocks; each stone is unique and quite remarkable in its own right. I travel all over the country looking for the prettiest and most interesting specimens I can find. I choose my cabochons based on the richness of color, design and beauty incorporated in the stone. They may cost a bit more, but to me it is totally worth it.
Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite is a very unique rock from Mexico that displays very bold patterns in primarily red/brown and blue/gray colors. The splendid patterns are reminiscent of a combination of Dr. Seuss and Salvador Dali captured on a rock canvas. The striking pattern produces exciting finished pieces.
I wrapped this beautiful cabochon as simply as possible with sterling silver 12mm wire using cold forming techniques to keep the highlight on the beautiful gray and red stone. The metal is hand-forged, shaped, filed and polished lovingly by hand. The pendant measures approximately 22x40mm (2” from top of bail) and comes complete with an 18'' Black Silicone Rubber 3mm Tubing Cord Necklace with Locking Clasp.
Every piece of jewelry is crafted with a very close attention to detail and is completely hand made. Each item will have its own character which is what makes them unique.

Metal forging has been used for centuries in forms such as that of blacksmithing. However, when used in jewelry it creates a delicate and interesting piece of wearable art. It is a technique that creates simple yet artistic lines and makes the stone the highlight using the wire to enhance instead of overwhelm the natural beauty of natures minerals.
