This necklace features an amazing Owyhee Jasper that I had custom made for me by David of Free Form Cabs here on etsy.

I had originally planned to face the stone up - like a triangle - because the patterns on the stone reminded me of a forest. However, when I flipped it upside down, the pattern turned into feathers, which is what inspired me to create the handmade sterling silver feather and add it to the pendant.

I made the pendant from scratch from sterling silver sheet metal (recycled, of course), round wire and fine silver bezel wire. I hand-drew the feather directly on the sheet metal, and then pierced it out with my saw. I soldered a piece of lightly hammer 16 gauge round wire onto it to finish it off. It's about 4 1/4 inches (10.5 cm) long from the bail to the end of the feather by about 1 5/8 inches wide at it's widest point (about 4.2 cm).

The chain is a beautiful rolo chain. I added tiny sterling silver beads to the end that attach the chain to the handmade clasps. It's about 18 1/2 inches long (47 cm).

I oxidized the whole piece and brushed it back with fine #0000 steel wool, which can be used to clean it. NOTE: You'll notice in the third photo that there is a little solder overflow on the pendant where the bezel meets the base. This is a purely aesthetic flaw as this is one sold piece. The price reflects this minor flaw. It's only noticeable when wearing if someone is looking for it. This is still one great looking piece!
