This Amethyst Pendant was crafted from raw Amethyst from Rwanda. I cut the amethyst stone into slabs and shaped a portion of a slab into the cabochon pictured. The sterling silver back plate is stamped the with the logo I designed for my business. Bezel wire was shaped around the stone and silver-soldered to the backplate, creating the pendant bezel. Half-round ball wire is wrapped and silver-soldered around the bezel setting to give some texture to the design and a sterling silver, ball wire ring and jump ring serve as the pendant bail.
