Exploring Ancient Technology through Experimental Archaeology
Sterling silver pendent set with Larimar, a small round opal, and a long tapered piece of sugilite. Larimar is a rare form of pectolite that is only found on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. It was discovered by a Peace Corps worker who named it after his daughter, Lara. I don’t cut stones to standard sizes, and so have to make almost all the settings from scratch.
