This statement piece is GORGEOUS, its hard not to keep it for myself! The top portion is a really cool raw quartz cluster! The quartz has some iron inclusions which give it a really earthy yellowish brown coloring. Lots of little points in there! The bottom stone is a polished Lodolite - which refers to the inclusions in the quartz. It is also known as "garden quartz" because these wispy inclusions can sometimes look like plants or flowers. The coloring in the one looks really nice with the iron quartz on top.
The super sturdy chain is about 15.5 inches long. If you need a different length chain, please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at email@example.com
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my high standards, and is then carefully positioned with special attention paid to color, gemstone flash, angle, and how it will hang on the body. 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 I am sure to make adjustments along the way. 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 :)
