Description

Hand carved, ocean jasper lion necklace on orange sapphire faceted beads. This carving in and of itself is a work of art. It was carved by a Native Australian man who my opal supplier works with. I found his carvings to be the highest quality and really inspiring. I've accented this carving with blue tourmaline, amethyst, emerald, pyrope garnet or hot pink spinel and some other uncommon gemstones. It was fun to make! It is strung on facetted orange sapphires to about 18" long. The setting is fine silver, sterling silver and 14k gold marriage of metals. It is a prong and bezel setting hybrid so you can really see the carving details. The pendant measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/16" long. The bail is large enough to remove the sapphires and wear each independently.
