Lapis & Moonstone Necklace

Lapis & Moonstone Necklace

$182.00

 

This necklace is part of my Ice and Fire collection. It is made using a giant Lapis Lazuli gemstone which has the gorgeous, classic deep indigo coloring and little specs of pyrite throughout the stone. The bottom stones are 3 rainbow moonstones, each has blue flash although it was hard to capture in the photos!

This is the first time I have worked with the incredible Lapis stone, and I must say I absolutely love it! Its fairly uncommon to see blue stones in jewelry and the pop of color the Lapis provides is fantastic. 

The pendant is about 2.75 inches long, the chain is about 19 inches long.

if you would like a different chain length please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at realm.and.reason@gmail.com. Please consider measurements carefully.

How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating. After they are all dry and finished, they are ready to be added to high quality, beautiful chains :)
