Ice and Fire - Amber Rock Crystal Clear Quartz silver gold necklace and earrings set
Ice and Fire - Amber Rock Crystal Clear Quartz silver gold necklace and earrings set.
I'm a huge fan of fantasy books so it's only natural that I get my inspiration from the books that I've read. So here is the set that was inspired by the *A Song of Ice and Fire* book series. The popular HBO TV-series *Game of Thrones* is based on these books.
~Ice and Fire~ Gemstone jewelry. Statement necklace with genuine Baltic Amber and Rock Crystal Clear Quartz beads wire wrapped in 14K gold filled, 18K Vermeil and Argentium sterling silver. A gorgeous, combination of icy Crystals and fiery Amber, gold and silver that will look beautiful against any skin tone!
The focal in this necklace was made using Fine Silver Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and decorated with real 24K gold foil using ancient Korean gilding technique called Keum-boo. The back is signed with my initials (AV) and stamped with PMC999 (Fine Silver mark).
The chain and the earrings were handcrafted using genuine Baltic Amber and Rock Crystal Clear Quartz beads wire wrapped in 14K gold filled, 18K Vermeil and Argentium sterling silver (High tarnish resistance). The necklace fastens with a lobster clasp and extension chain, which I've finished off with a single Garnet rondelle.
Total length ~ adjustable from 16 to 17 inches (40 to 43 cm)
Focal pendant ~ 1 1/4 inches ( 3.5 cm)
Earrings ~ 1 1/8 inches (3 cm)
What is PMC? A unique form of pure silver (mainly composed of recycled silver particles) suspended in an organic binder. In this clay-like state it allows PMC artists to form and sculpt metal clay by hand. When fired at high temperatures by torch or in a jeweler's kiln, the binder burns off and the silver particles are fused together. The result is a one-of-a-kind pure silver piece (.999) purer than Sterling silver (.925)
