Description

This is another Obsidian stone carved bolo. The carving is of water dragon and two fish. I first made a bezel by shaping some scalloped wire around the stone to hold it in place to the backing, I had to chamfer the edge of the stone so that the bezel would hold tightly. I then backed the stone with a solid piece of sterling silver to match the shape of the carved stone. Before the stone was set into the bezel I soldered a spring back to the 24 gauge sterling backing. I ran a leather braided black cord through the spring slide and then attached the bolo tips to the black leather cord on both ends. The tips are sterling silver with small spheres soldered to the end of each one. This bolo feels good to the touch and the silver is highly polished. Worn with a dress suit it will command a sophisticated look. This is a wearable piece of art that will become a family heirloom. The tie when stretched out tightly from top to bottom is about 18 inches long. The cord itself is 36 inches long. The carving is of obsidian stone and three fish swimming in a pond is 2-1/8 inches long and 1-3/4 inches wide.

I bought this ring from Fraustojewelry and commissioned a second one in another stone. I was astonished that Sarah and Patrick finished my order by the next day and shipped it immediately! Beautiful work, fabulous communication! I am delighted and would gladly order from them again!

This is an exemplary specimen of malachite; Sarah and Patrick truly have a trained eye for curating stones. The stone, set in carefully scalloped sterling, has a supremely reflective high shine. The countless swirls and multiple distinct hues of green make for a striking piece of jewelry.

Sarah and Patrick were once again a dream to work with. Incomparably prompt service with a wealth of product knowledge.

This piece is simply stunning. While the photos were enticing, the physical product exceeded all my expectations. The sweetwater agate itself is gorgeous with distinct patterns and an incredibly polished shine; the impeccable sterling setting perfectly suits the whimsical asymmetry of the stone.

Sarah and Patrick were great to work with. They quickly provided expert information about the materials and got my bolo tie to me in just a few days. I admired their collection for quite awhile before placing an order and will absolutely be doing more business with them soon. They are clearly adept craftsmen with a winning sense of style.
