Ooak Rare Flame Obsidian Fish Pendant

This is one of my all time favorite pendants. I watched as this stone was being cut, it attracted me so much because I could immediately see that it was a fish face! I had to have it...;-} I had never before seen this kind of stone, nor have I seen one since. The cut itself was unusual, with inverted curves and the polish on it was superb. In sunlight, the two 'flames', one gold, one orange, were clearly evident & striking.

I thought the juxtaposition of both geometric patterns and angles along with the smooth flowing lines of the stone & 'whiskers' could be brought together with the repousséd body of the fish. It worked out well. I used flat metal fabrication to build it & combined sterling, copper & bronze to bring out the colors of the stone.

It was a large pendant, approx 2.5"s sq.
