Queen Bee Collection - One of a Kind - Rhodochrosite Pendant
Rhodochrosite, a stone so special the Incas thought it was the blood of their ancestors. This piece is especially unique in that it is faceted - because rhodochrosite has a hardness of 3.5 - 4 on the Moh's scale (out of a possible 10), it's not easy to create facets without breaking it. Truly a beautiful pink/peach/watermelon color.
It's set on a 1 inch pendant with a vine pattern. Each leaf on the vine is hand cut and then individually soldered to create a 3 dimensional effect. It's oxidized and then the pattern and frame around the pendant are polished to show the silver. Truly makes it "pop". It hangs from a 19 inch rolo chain that's also oxidized.
This is a one of a kind piece. If you'd like the piece to be a particular length, message me for details.
