Repurposed, Renewed, Remarkable! Artisan Altered Vintage Component Sterling Silver Iolite Gemstone Pendant Necklace Artisan Created Petal Detail. Artisan's do it better! Enjoy!

Honestly, I'm almost at a loss for words to describe this Artisan Altered/Repurposed Sterling Vintage Piece! I will humbly try to forge ahead though. :)

I've taken a dauntingly large Vintage Sterling Silver Earring and created this spectacular, One-Of-A-Kind Artisan Pendant! It's true! I wanted to be able to use as much of the original piece as possible, while creating this new design. It's important to me to stay true to the Vintage look and feel in every altered vintage piece I work with. This is a thick and strong piece, not at all flimsy or malleable.

Pictures #3 and #4 show what the original earring looked like before I worked a little Artisan magic. I've lowered the basket and created new petal-like prongs from the old, longer ones. I've hand-altered this piece as well as hand-buffed and burnished to a high-polish shine. The bail was formed by the original earring part that led up to the screw-back it once held. I've added a slight curve to this flattering pendant, as seen in picture #2.

I chose this breathtaking Iolite, aka Water Sapphire, to securely sit in the very center of this captivating pendant. All newly created prongs are masterfully curved and symmetrical. They are each poised exactly across from their mirroring partner of this newly-created setting.

This is no illusion, but it IS grand! This gemstone in particular is wholly exciting with its rich faceting and gorgeous color play. The Iolite, when found in exceptional Grade AAA such as this one, boasts a soft blue-gray shade so tranquil and brilliant, you'll love it. The Sterling Silver boxchain is also Vintage and measures 18 inches. This gemstone is a pristine 7mm round, which translates to over a full carat total gem-weight. Enjoy!
