Mimbres Rhyolite or Apache Sage. — Two names for such a unique and breathtaking stone originating from a mine in New Mexico. Dendrites within the stone seem to sprawl out, providing an other-worldly landscape.
Wrapped in fine silver and backed on open sterling backplates (for an equally lovely view), this pair has been oxidized utilizing a non-toxic, old method of adding patina to silver.
Hanging from hand formed solid 14kt gold wires with additional solid gold accent pieces. Finished with oxidized lever-backs.
These stones measure approximately 0.7 inches tall by 0.65 inches wide. A total drop length of about 1.6 inches.
These are handmade and one of a kind. I have created these in an eco-friendly manner — from hand with no harsh jewelers chemicals and no power tools.
The old fashioned way, using recycled silver.
Thus, it has taken me a considerable amount of time compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Therefore, file marks, as well as asymmetries are all part of the hand-fashioned process.
** PLEASE NOTE: I can not make changes to sizing or oxidation preferences once a piece is complete; I am not set up to do so. How my items show here is the final product. Because of my power tool-free ways, and lack of traditional jewelers chemicals in my process, this piece is sold as you see it here. **
