Earthscapes Pendant with Turquoise and Jade


This piece is inspired by the textures of granite stones found on the rocky trails in Maine. The form of this piece is reminiscent of how the land meets the water when looking down from a mountain top. It is both simple and elegant with the addition of gold and the magnificent stones. The contrast of gold and silver, metal and stone is reminiscent of the contrasts I observe in nature —trees against stone, stone against water.
