Cobalt Glass with Moonstone & Quartz Rollerball Pendant
This sparkling rollerball necklace was entirely handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques by me, here in my Southeastern, North Carolina studio. The metal starts out as sheet and wire, and I use hand tools and my torch to solder everything together. The silver, completely encases the plastic rollerball screw cap. It is adorned with embossed patterning, much like damask cloth. The top is adorned with a faceted quartz crystal through which can be seen a stamped starburst design. The front is adorned with a small rainbow moonstone. The rollerball in the bottle can be removed, and you could store tiny items inside. This pendant comes in a 20 inch long, rolo style, sterling chain with a lobster claw clasp. I take great care to create heirloom quality works imbued with a love of my craft. This is a truly one of a kind piece!
