"(Dis)enchantment" Pendant

  • A pendant designed in Rhino, printed and cast in silver with a pink/orange bicolored tourmaline. I did not make the basket setting for the stone but it was made to my specifications.
    The idea was conceived during the summer of 2013, on the same paper as the "Caged" Necklace, and fabricated mid 2015.
    It took a long time because I was a little hesitant to print this because of the size, how heavy it would be, and the price of the fabrication and post production. I was also very worried about the setting snapping off during the casting and the shrinkage, which led to working with my setter to create a setting that would support the stone while showing its beauty. 
    The pendant was designed for the stone which had been purchased at a trade show in 2013.
