A large raw blue lapis lazuli suspended on a rustic hammered and formed rigid copper necklace.
This natural raw large lapis (3 inches or 7 1/2 cm from top to bottom) is simply set in a rustic copper prong setting. The heavy gauge copper of the collar hammered and formed into an oval on a neck mandrel. It closes with a hand forged copper hook at the back and is around 19 1/2 inches (49 cm) end to end).
Lapis beads have been found in Neolithic burial sites and it has been used throughout history; in the Indus Valley civilisation as early as 3000, in the funeral mask of Tutankhamen and even ground into ultramarine pigment during the Middle Ages. Lapis is often polished but I have left this stone in its natural raw state.
My work is purposefully rustic reflecting my love for this aesthetic. My solder joins, hammer or tool marks are often visible on the finished piece. For me, these are beautiful because they reflect the processes and techniques used in creation and are signposts to the journey a piece has taken with me.
