Raven and Dove Jade Pendants
These are the first of a series and a new design for me.
The Jades are both first class.
The Raven is made out of beautiful Australian Jade from the 1st Mine in Cowell. It has an amazing 3D “Moonscape” pattern at the bottom. It has a awesome glow around the outside when held up the sun.
The stone I chose for the Dove is Siberian white Jade. It goes into a light root beer colour at the top. Beautifully translucent.
I sculpted the metal part out of putty and then cast it in Sterling Silver. I then added the beaks and carved the the heads to shape. There is no glue in these, the silver is pinned securely into the Jade.
They are stamped on the back with .925 (Sterling Silver) and my markers mark.
