It all starts with the lampworked cabochon - worked in the flame here in my Tucson studio. This one measures 27mm round. The colors are a dusky purple surrounded by a deep caramel. It is bezel set in sterling silver on a pendant that measures 35 mm. The unique aspect is that I have set an oval turquoise in the glass cabochon. This is known as a stone in stone setting. In this instance it is a stone in glass setting.
Next is the sterling silver teardrop links. Several sizes in this necklace.
A dark patina is applied.
The necklace is approximately 18 inches. Easy to wear every day.
Each Amanda necklace is a one of a kind piece with a unique cab and stones to match.
