My pendants some information
I make a lot of pendants, assuming you have a nice chain to put it on, or can easily acquire chain. This keeps the cost down. I sell to people who use my centerpiece in their own creative finished necklace. All the art you see is work I have done myself. In most cases I find the stones and cut them. I find the fossils, wood, and other Alaska materials. In many cases material needs special care like stabilizing. Each piece is hand cut one of a kind no templates never repeated design. I carve the original metal in wax,make a mold and do my own casting of caps, each cast just for that piece. I usually cast 20 at a time to save time and costs. I do all my work in Nenana Alaska population 300 , in a 100 year old log cabin. There is usually a story behind each piece. I do go to Tucson to the big gem fossil show. My mother lives there so I go visit her and do the show. Over the years I buy sell trade and do acquire turquoise, cut stones, amber, and non Alaska materials, but specialize in Alaska.

Pendant cut amethyst with duck
Showy piece, very unique custom setting. Nice 1 inch hand cut amethyst with some slight inclusions that give it character. Copper and brass wire with brass flowers and duck. Opal flower center. Setting does not cover stone which shows it off. Stone reminds me of ‘water’ thus a duck theme.
Turquoise pendant opal and moon
Large turquoise 3 x 2 x ¼ inches wrapped around edge with silver moose and brass leaves soldered to rim. Natural untreated turquoise. Cut from natural chunk I acquired in Mexico. Australia opal gives accent and sparkle. 2 ounces.
Fossil fish pendant
Dinosaur era fossil fish in it’s natural setting. Set in brass, with two brass fish soldered to setting. 3 x 2 x 1//4 inches. A light 1 ounce.
Pendant opal fish
Nice showy piece, high end lab opal with silver setting and stylized custom cast fish cap. 2 x 1 inches. Natural opal of this size quality does not exist, and if so would be thousands of $. This is real opal, just created in a lab at an affordable price. Usually suck opal is for small accents. Unusual to see it as such a large centerpiece. Chain bail on back of fish.
