A lovely piece by this prolific, widely collected, award-winning, jeweler.
It displays his masterful inlay technique and his wonderful sense of design and proportion.
The material inlaid is of a lively variety – Jade, Lapis, Spiny Oyster, Turquoise, and multiple Jaspers – and the artist has masterfully arranged the chunks so the natural variations and colors in the stones create a lively pattern of lighter and dark areas.
The stone is cut into rectangular chunks, that are almost the same depth, so the inlay is neither entirely smooth nor highly raised.
This gives the pendant texture, and the straight lines of the cut stones are in lockstep with the rectangular silver form.
Smaller in size, but full of exciting colors, and flattering in form, this pendant is elegantly unpretentious and ready to wear in all seasons!
