I had the pleasure of using two of the lovely cabochons I blogged about earlier as well as a stone I cut myslef to make some gifts for my cousin’s wedding.
The beautiful chrysoprase was set in sterling silver and accented with black onyx and chrysoprase beads. This one was for my aunt, the mother of the bride. The chrysoprase was the exact color of the pattern in her dress. It was almost as if this stone’s color was lifted right off the fabric!
I also made some lever back dangle earrings to match.
My aunt also selected the labradorite cabochon for the sister-in-law to-be. Her favorite color is blue, and the flash on this beauty won’t disappoint! I’ve accented the pendant with a bezel-set round labradorite and sterling silver balls. The pendant attaches to the sterling silver chain with moonstone and labradorite beads. I lightly oxidized the whole necklace for contrast.
For the mother-in-law to-be, I made a necklace with a bezel-set laguna lace agate that I cut from a stash of rocks I inherited from my grandfather. It was one of the first stones I ever cut and polished. The agate is accented with a white topaz. The sterling silver necklace attaches to the pendant with crystal quartz and red jasper beads.
I will be posting more cabochons soon. All will be available for custom pieces!
