I am a lapidary jewelry artist that hand-cuts stone to extract its artistic colors and patterns. I then design and create settings from wire using only my hands, pliers and snippets. I designed and make a choker chain from the same wire to showcase these pendants. I use fine silver wire, 14k gold filled wire and sterling silver. I also make several different styles of bracelets and earrings from the wire and a ring. All the items are my own designs and created by myself.
