Sneak Peek, the second!

I have finished sorting and cropping photos, the copy is written, and now it's time to begin the Etsy upload. I anticipate the update will be sometime on Wednesday.


Calunga, Mother of the Waters.

This pendant of fine silver is a miniature work of art with a combination of unique textures and hand sculpting in order to show a spiral nautilus with tentacles, nuanced sea sand, and smooth pebbles. Cabochons of plum blue-purple iolite and violet amethyst have been bezel set amongst the pebbles.

And...


Atargatis

Atargatis, the mother of Assyrian queen Semiramis, was a goddess who loved a mortal shepherd and in the process killed him. Ashamed, she jumped into a lake to take the form of a fish, but the waters would not conceal her divine beauty. Thereafter, she took the form of a mermaid — human above the waist, fish below.

This one of a kind bezel pendant features a breathtaking cabochon of dark royal purple agate druzy. It holds thin bands of darker purple that radiate out from the crystalline druzy center.

The stone is set within a sterling silver cathedral bezel. The backplate of fine silver holds a low relief texture of tangled coral branches. The back of the pendant holds my artist's mark and the .999 fine silver hallmark.



I will post one more sneak peek before the new work is live! I think perhaps I'll show some of the Summerwing and early Midsummer items next...
