Lapis Lazuli Inlay Pendant
I fell in love with the inlay process during a month in New Mexico at a jewelry making retreat. First a silver picture frame is built to the size needed, then the pieces of stone are sawn and ground to snap in like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Stones are epoxied in, then a long process of grinding and polishing begins. I have multiple inlay pendants with many different stones, all one of a kind. I also have trays of mineral slabs that a customer can pick from, and help design their own piece.
Hand cut lapis slab set in sterling silver frame. $110
