Apatite and Chrysocolla Necklace


This necklace is all about the blues. Apatite and Chrysocolla Sterling Silver Artisan Necklace. Gorgeous Chrysocolla and Apatite stones bezel set using traditional metalsmith techniques. All silver has been hand sawn, soldered and textured.  I was inspired to make this necklace after looking in my cabochon box and the two stones were sitting next to each other and they just looked like they wanted to dance together.  I added a pattern of holes to the back of the Apatite backplate to let the light shine through.  Hanging on a 20” rolo chain with Apatite stones connecting to my handformed hook and eye clasp which matches the Chrysocolla swirly setting.  The pendant measures 4” (100mm) long.  All silver was given a darker patina to compliment the deep blues
