Gem Blue Finnish Spectrolite Sterling Necklace/Earrings set
The living colors in these gems move all over the place! This particular set of gems has not only intense blue, but also patches of yellow, red and purple. It is some of the best blue Spectrolite I've seen. I polish the gems on both sides and handcut them in my trademark fashion, I then set them in a band of cast precious metal. I then "chase" the stone into the hand-cast bezel. I also make the beads and the clasps by hand, one at a time. I do this only on the pieces I make to be hung from the leather cord. Many hours go into each one and each is one of a kind. Earrings have "leverbacks" for security. These pieces are for the woman who thought she had everything! Gem size:Neck - 39mmL x 12mmW 6mm thick.Ear -33mmL x9mmW 5.5mm thick (very lightweight). $1,559.99
Maerlyn's Rainbow #4 14K Finnish Spectrolite Pendant
This Gem is from one of the finest crystals I got from Finland before Spectrolite became the "rage". I cut four pieces from it; this is the smallest. I sold it before I got it done! The most interesting thing about this design is that the chain becomes a design element, instead of just hanging the piece. I give myself credit for seeing that this could be done. This style is very innovative and I let the metal and materials do what they want instead of "forcing" them according to strict "modelmaking" rules. This produces a feeling of a wildness in the look of the precious metal. I let them be, believing them to show the raw power of the process. Sorry, never to be seen again: $2,999.99 SOLD
