I have showcased a large piece of carnelian within copper and sterling silver wirework and fashioned a coiled wire bail. The 2 inch high centrepiece is suspended from a beautifully textural chain, composed of beaded and embellished links, which I have handcrafted from yet more carnelian, wrapped in copper and silver. I have added an oxidised patina to add depth and highlight the spicy reds, ambers and milky whites in the beads. It is said that carnelian is a good stone to choose if you are involved in any kind of dramatic art, as it energises and imparts self confidence. The trigger clasp is made of sterling silver. Length 17.5 Inches.
