Gold and Silver Pendant with Zircon and Opal
Gold, Silver, & Stone Necklace
Created by Jan Van Diver
Large dimensional pendant incorporates unique dotted and striped texture panels of oxidized sterling silver and pure 24K gold which balance gently curved negative shapes. A 3.5 mm faceted blue zircon set into 22K gold bezel and a free form opal complete the design. The textured panels were created using a fusing technique which brings the metal almost to melting with a torch followed by hand finishing. The pattern pieces can never be recreated due to the serendipitous nature of the technique itself. A light grey patina accentuates the patterns. This is one of a kind and completely hand fabricated by the artist. It hangs from an 18' 2.2mm sterling silver snake chain. The pendant can accept a heavier chain if desired.
