Garnet and Hand-cut Gem Necklace
These pieces are all one-of-a-kind, made with stones that have been collected from far and wide; reclaimed from old jewellery that was melted down for the metal. In most cases, when people sell their gold and silver jewellery for cash, the pieces are melted down to refine and the stones get melted along with the metal. In this collection, we are giving these stones a new and happy home, rescuing them from their fiery fate.
A sparkling merlot-coloured reclaimed garnet sits above a local Ontario gemstone that I hand-cut in a lapidary workshop. Stones are set in a hand-fabricated sterling silver pendant. Pendant measures 1.5" tall and hangs on an 18" silver chain.
