Amethyst and Carnelian Hoop Necklace
Round pendant necklace with amethyst and carnelian stones set off by silver wire wraps.
This pendant was hand forged using sterling silver square wire and set with one amethyst and two carnelian cabochons. The top loop and spacers between the stones are a smaller gauge sterling silver wire. I purposely left the carnelian settings a little taller and cut out tabs to hold the stones down for an organic, rustic feel. The whole necklace has been oxidized and then lightly sanded with fine grit sandpaper to bring out the highlights. The central amethyst was set in a scalloped bezel wire that reminds me of a flower just beginning open.
The pendant is 1.5" (3.8 cm) across, and the chain is 18" (46 cm) long. The necklace closes with a lobster claw clasp.
