Needles

The 'Needles' necklace features a stunning rutilated quartz cabochon, with naturally occurring black tourmaline 'rutiles' that look like little needles suspended in the crystal. This gemstone is set in a round sterling silver setting, decorated with pearl wire. It hangs on a hand-wired chain of micro-faceted rutilated quartz rondelles, with a front-closing silver toggle clasp. I have oxidised the silver to a dark patina and hand-polished it up to give an antiqued finish. This piece is entirely hand-fabricated and has been hallmarked by the Birmingham Assay Office in accordance with UK law for the sale of precious metals. The pendant measures about 1"/2.5cm in diameter and the chain is about 17" / 43cm long.
