Tyrone Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant with Balled Accents
Pendant only. Chain/cord not included!
This gorgeous pendant features a teardrop shaped Tyrone turquoise (Zachary treat method to preserve the color). Each piece of the setting was hand fabricated. A fine silver bezel setting was created for the turquoise, soldered closed, and checked for fit before being soldered to the sterling silver backplate. A range of balled argentium silver was soldered around the bottom of the setting. Each ball was created from reclaimed scrap pieces. Once all of the pieces were soldered, the outline was cut with a fine jeweler's saw then filed and sanded to smooth the edges. A dark patina was added to the entire piece then tumbled for a rustic finish to compliment the stone.
Stamped with .925 and the maker, shop owner, Amy Bumgardner's, initials.
