Heat Wave, Natural Yellow Calcite Onyx Pendant
Inspired by the sun on a hot summer day; Heat Wave boasts a gorgeous natural yellow calcite onyx stone that is semi-translucent with graceful, lacy bands. The stone is sourced from Mexico. As a lapidary artisan, I hand cut this cabochon stone, giving it a nice smooth cut and a shiny polish. The mixed metalwork consists primarily of solid .925 sterling silver for the backplate and bale, with jeweler’s red brass being utilized for the overlay sun. The cabochon stone has been set with solid .999 fine silver serrated bezel. The artsy piece is textured with a slightly wavy line type of patterning and given a soft brushed satin finish and an oxidized/ antiqued patina. There is a whole lot of time, patience, skill and love that went into this creation from start to finish. My creations are truly a labor of love made by hand from raw materials; which are shaped, sawed, soldered, filed, polished and antiqued with patina. The overall style of this unique piece is my interpretation of retro mid century modern, in which I deeply adore many aspects of.
This pendant is a nice large size. A few of the listing photos shows it paired with a 1.75mm thick round sterling silver omega necklace just to give a good visual as to how the pendant hangs and what it would look like paired with something similar. It would also look fantastic paired with a single or multi-strand beaded necklace, a single or multi suede/ leather necklace, most any classic thicker chain, or a wide classic omega necklace. There are many great ways to wear this piece. The pendant does not include a chain or necklace. If one is needed, please let me know.
The rock slab that is seen in one of the listing photos is the gorgeous honey yellow calcite onyx rock material from which this was cut.
My photography was taken both outdoors and indoors in the natural lighting for this listing. Colors do vary according to lighting, and in addition they will appear slightly different on monitors and devices depending upon personal settings. The listing photos don’t do justice for this pendant.
