Gold Pendant/Brooch With Lapis And Tourmaline

Beginning with a rather large piece of lapis lazuli, I set out to create a brooch that might, alternatively, be worn as a pendant. My intention was to isolate the lapis and juxtapose it against something as visually interesting. In the end, I created a smaller, rounded rectangular area off to the side. In this portion I set three tourmaline crystals which are backed by a highly textured surface of gold in order to create a more intense visual drama.
