This exquisite piece is made using a hefty combination of beautiful stones. The large white piece is ethically sourced Water Buffalo bone from Indonesia. It is collected and carved by a small family of Indonesian artisans, and this piece has an incredibly detailed floral design. The 2nd picture shows the carving in more detail, and it is even more beautiful in person. The top center stone is Gem Lepidolite which is the best quality of Lepidolite and it is polished completely smooth with great flash. On either side of the Lepidolite, there are 2 round pink Kunzite, and it is adorned with 6 Rainbow Moonstones and 8 accent balls.
**Please note: This piece has been discounted because it did not come out perfect. There is very small areas of blue staining on the sides of the bone, it is hardly noticeable, just not perfect**
The pendant is about 3 inches long, about 3.25 wide, and the chain is about 14 inches long.
if you would like a different chain length please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 :)
