Dendritic Quartz and Handmade Chain Statement Necklace
This one of a kind sterling silver necklace features a stunning dendritic quartz gemstone and a handcrafted hammered chain. I created a custom 8 prong setting for this unique gemstone and then accented the setting with overlapping wires which I arranged around the stone to play off the branchlike formations of dendrite crystals forming inside of the quartz. I really love this effect and when the pendant was finished I felt it really needed a special chain to balance the pendant. I created a chain for this with solid sterling silver, formed each individual link, securely welded them all shut and proceeded to form some of the links into an oval shape and then I hand hammered each link in some areas to give each link dimension and interest. After polishing the entire necklace to a high shine I added a dark patina and then polished it again, leaving the patina just in the recessed areas which gives this beautiful high low finish to the necklace. The high polish is revealed in some areas and then the contrast of the dark patina really makes it pop and perfectly accents this unique gemstone.
