swirled, crepe-y carved pearl drop pendant

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019

This pendant was inspired in part by Fujikasa Satoko’s sculpture. She makes these blindingly gorgeous flowing sculptures reminiscent of billowing silk, crepe-y poppy leaves, Loie Fuller’s dress dance..

The pearl is super smooth Tahitian with a cool greenish-pistachio color and lots of rainbow-y overtones. More images after the click:

I was so flipping happy with this pendant-choker! It’s 18K and has a curled snake holding an 8.85ct Ethiopian opal.

Custom carved 18K Octopus Tahitian Pearl Pendant

This pearl is about the side of the top of my thumb—it is giant! And Tahitian, and with a really nice peacock-y iridescence. I carved this little octopus guy for it and it just turned out so cool! 18K yellow gold.

Custom carved rose-ginkgo-honeybee pendant in 14K gold

This was a custom pendant + earring set carved with roses, ginkgo leaves, and little bees here and there. 14K white gold. I am so sorry my photos were funky on this one; I think this is why it took me so long to post. These guys turned out so nicely; I wish I had a better shot of the honeybees. I thought I did a pretty good job on them, if I may be so bold 🙂

22K anchor pendant w/diamond & emerald

It was inevitable that I would get around the carving an anchor pendant. Zillions of them are out there, and with good reason: they are iconic and symbolic and just flipping cool. Here’s my iteration.

Since this is not an anchor for dragging along the bottom of the sea, I made it in 22K gold and added a .11ct E-F-G VS pear diamond and a little 2mm emerald.

rococo leaf swirl pendant

18K hand-carved Rococo Leaves Pendant with diamond, 18K

Hand-carved pendant with a swirl of feathery Rococo-style leaves. I absolutely love carving free-form pieces like this—not so much that the overall shape/design is free-form, but more the detail and contour on each leaf, which I just kind of got to make up as I went. It’s in 18K gold with a 1/4 carat diamond dewdrop. Or maybe a moon rising through a break in the trees. I keep changing my mind..
