Dinosuar Bone Custom Cuff For Joy

I often get custom orders from people who have been either amateur 'rock-hounds' or those who have tried their hand at lapidary or even some who simply LOVE to go to gem & mineral shows...:-}, the consequence being that they have stones or gems that they are attracted to but have no way of enjoying it often by wearing something it is incorporated into. Sometimes they have a good idea of what they would like to do with it, but often they do not, this is where I love to play. Joy was one of those who had been all of the above at different points in her life, she had MANY stones for me to play with..;-}

Every stone has it's story, it's own energy, just as all living creatures do & so I look for its' ' story' & try to bring it into expression in a beautiful way. I also attempt to bring both sides of the equation into harmony, a balance between the stone & the individual via a particular vehicle of form such as a pendant, bracelet, ring or even a circlet , it all depends on what they both desire.

This was such a beautiful piece of bone,,the colors different than I usually run into, so I wanted to follow the striations in the bone & build replicas of those areas into the buff. I made this using flat metal fabrication, materials were: sterling, jeweler's bronze & copper. The colors made for a very warm, & sunlit cuff. since the cabochon was 1 3/4"s long x 1 5/8ths wide (high) it made for a wide cuff, which gave me plenty of room to work with.
