Morrisonite Pendant Necklace
Morrisonite can be so stunning and here is an example of just that! It looks like a wheat field with a lightning-filled night sky. The colors are gorgeous mustard yellows, blue-grey, and black. I made it into a slightly boho-style pendant in sterling silver. Stones like this one I consider little masterpieces of nature and I try to make them into wearable art. This is a great pendant that definitely makes a statement and adds lovely rich color to your day. Treat yourself or offer it as a special gift!
SETTING: I gave the stone a fine silver and sterling bezel setting. A sterling half-circle with little stamped line accents is soldered to the back and, with three jump rings, hangs from a solid sterling cable chain. The chain closes with a handmade sterling hook.
SIZE: This natural Morrisonite measures about 34mm x 27mm (1 3/8" x 1 1/16") with the border around the setting adding another few millimetres all around. The chain is about 18" long.
FINISH: The silver has a soft, oxidized patina.
