An ornate bronze frame surrounds this stunning Lapis Lazuli cabochon. From the bottom of the pendant hangs a lovely freshwater pearl drop. Matching freshwater pearl chains complete the necklace.

This piece of lapis is stunning. It is entirely dark blue with no white and a light dusting of pyrite, which shimmers like golden stars across a midnight sky. These photos were taken in a combination of sunlight and full spectrum ("daylight") bulbs. The lapis stone may appear darker indoors if you have incandescent bulbs.

A fancy, pronged copper bezel (plus some Jeweler's Epoxy for extra oomph) hold this beautiful stone securely in place.

Necklace closes securely with an easy-to-operate floral hook and eye clasp. This lovely brass piece is detailed on both sizes.

Pendant measures 1.4 x 2 inches (35x53mm).

Chains are approximately 20 inches long.

I crafted this pendant with BRONZclay, which is real metal particles in a pulp binder. I then baked the clay in a 1545 degree kiln for a few hours to burn out the binder and fuse the metal together. What emerged from the kiln was a 100% solid piece of metal, in this case bronze.

I sealed the pendant with ProtectaClear metal sealer. This protective finish will ward off tarnish for a while, but this piece will eventually need to be polished just like sterling silver (only with copper polish instead of silver polish).
